The technologicalization of nature is a phenomenon closely connected with the present time and, in addition to the increased efficiency of plant production, it is also negatively associated with the loss of the "natural" at the expense of the "technological". What happens if these elements are interconnected?
One of the ambitions of the Photosynthetic Landscape project is to present the use of microalgae as photosynthetic organisms in the context of the loss of greenery in the urban environment, its impact on the reduced quality of public space. The courtyard of the Nevan Contempo Gallery in close proximity to the traditional flora of the Paradise Garden Park and Rieger Gardens is in contrast to the technological greenery of the prototype Photosynthetic Landscape - a modular, organic system that pushes the boundaries of thinking about nature and technology in the context of environmentally oriented spatial installation.
The prototype is part of the research of the PhD. candidate MgA. Veronika Miškovičová and her team Anna Östlund, Vojtěch Kordovský and Adam Varga led by prof. ak. arch. Imrich Vaško and assistant MgA. Shota Tsikoliya, Ph.D., M.Sc. within the Studio of Architecture III at UMPRUM Prague.
Partners of the project: Vysoká škola uměleckoprůmyslová v Praze, Landscape Festival, NEVAN CONTEMPO, Mikrobiologický ústav AV ČR Třeboň - Centrum Algatech, ITB Development, Architekti Šebo Lichý
