Global population is expected to grow 33% by 2050
70% of people will live in cities by 2050
Food demand is expected to increase 78% by 2050
Agriculture currently drains 70% of freshwater withdrawals
A growing demand for local food means a growing need for water. Agricultural infrastructure must evolve to utilize water more efficiently, especially in water stressed regions and rapidly growing cities.
We are rethinking urban food systems to be more locally attuned, self-sustaining, and symbiotic by harnessing water from atmospheric sources such as rain, fog, and humidity. Our product, called AquaWeb, captures, stores, and distributes water into local food production.
Using biomimicry, regenerative innovation inspired by nature, we build products and systems based on the functional principles and strategies of organisms and ecosystems.
Saving on water and energy costs
makes growing produce easier and
Passive strategies, benign materials, and responsible resource management reduces negative environmental impact.
Flexible, intuitive design allows for integration with various farming strategies and material waste streams.
Irrigating with local water sources
allows access to local farming in regions without arable land.
Tapping into atmospheric sources and storing within building envelopes improves resiliency regardless of climate.
Distributed water infrastructure enables off-the-grid solutions for food production, supporting sustainable farmers.
AquaWeb incorporates natural structural principles to allow for simple self assembly, scalability, and adaptive building integration.
Each of AquaWeb’s parts can be swapped out for easy maintenance, continued upgrades, and tailoring to local environmental conditions.
We actively integrate materials that are biodegradable, recycled from other waste streams, or strategically fabricated to approach a net zero footprint.
