A new phycology research center and underwater village emerges in an urgent bid to save the endangered kelp forests. The megastructure acts as a "lung" of the ocean to boost carbon sequestration and rehabilitate the health of its marine ecosystem. Hydrodynamic, shape-shifting formai qualities of seaweed informs its biomimicry design, while mechanization of the upwelling oceanographic phenomena restores circulation of cool, nutrient-rich waters. Here, Meriens adopt a nomadic way of life by comfortably taking their submarine homes everywhere they go - reinventing what it means to work from home.

Descriptive of Author : As global carbon emissions continue to soar at an all time high, we unlock the potential of aquatic kelp forests to revert climate change.
