Rain Reef – Urban Reef

Part of the broader Urban Reef project, Rain Reef is a ceramic, 3D-printed structure designed as a water reservoir that is bioreceptive to algae and mosses.

Type Project
Rain Reef – Urban Reef

It uses natural materials, primarily clay, to create a porous and bio-receptive surface. The Rain Reef actively absorbs water and promotes microclimates, serving as a habitat for a diverse range of species. This installation stands as both a conceptual framework and a functional model for bio-inclusive urbanism, challenging traditional norms in urban planning and emphasizing the necessity of multi-species habitats for future sustainable cities.
