Algae Gardens is a ferry terminal with a museum incorporated, however, the bigger picture is more foucssed on the experience one has in the psace, rather than its amenities. The idea of this design is to address the pollution problem by using the structure as the solution. Seaweed, a natural water filter, will be grown in the ponds, which are organically shaped. These naturally shaped ponds set the form for the entire structure, creating this great artificial landscape.
