Carbon Assimilating Structure

The Propagate Tower explores carbon-capturing technology that would allow harmful greenhouse gases to be converted into usable building materials! It starts as a simple vertical scaffold of carbon-capturing material. Required ingredients for propagation are supplied through the scaffold, while its actual pattern of growth is defined by environmental factors such as wind, weather & the saturation of carbon dioxide within the immediate atmosphere. Each resulting structure is sui generis in its formal expression, while maintaining a regular spatial organization for ease of adaptation.
