The structure is based on Weaire Phelan geometry (3-dimesional structure of equal-sized bubbles). The modules lock together and form flexible compositions.

The structure is based on Weaire Phelan geometry (3-dimesional structure of equal-sized bubbles). The modules lock together and form flexible compositions. Each module contains plants with roots that are highly efficient in absorbing indoor air toxins such as formaldehyde and benzene. Providing optimal light exposure, they function as micro-greenhouses connected by water misting infrastructure that distributes water through the use of humidity sensors and atomizers. The absorption of polluted air is supported by fans attached to alternating modules.
