The electric coral reef station floats between areas that require coral reefs to dissipate storms near coastlines. Complex geometry used in the solar-powered station, designed by Margot Krasojevic, buffers oncoming waves, slowing them down in the process. Floating cells power an electric circuit that stimulates limestone and coral growth, which eventually grow onto the metal cages that are dropped into the ocean to rehabilitate the world’s endangered coral reefs.
