Problem: The cement industry is one of the primary producers of carbon dioxide, a major greenhouse gas on the other hand  concrete is one of the most versatile, adaptable and potent building material.

Aim: The aim of this project is to design for bio receptivity using rainfall as an agent enforcing growth onto barren building surface creating a micro climatic zone favorable for further expansion of growth as well as to improve air quality.

Base material:Fly Ash is naturally manufactured goods from coal ignition process and this fly ash is nearly similar as volcanic ash. So by combining primary building material such as concrete and industrial waste such as fly ash to make a geo-polymer and use it for growth.

Concept: Volcanic Ash Agriculture
