Symbiosphere 1 Center
Symbiosphere 1 Center is an aggregate of multi-functional, symbiotic, experimental and digitalized habitable construction. It mimics interdependent relationships in the natural world. It plays a role as a platform for the dialogue between knowledge, technology and the geographical as well as the climatic condition the center situated. A localized miniature symbiotic and recycling system is built to conduct integrated, long-term, and comprehensive research. The Center hopes to not only increase the efficiency of materials and energy but also put symbiotic lifestyle into practice. Since its open on Oct. 23, 2002, the Center has implemented a series of experiments on symbiotic lifestyle, and is currently operated through four symbiotic recycling systems, including planting, symbiotic meal, cleaning and compost, to test whether these systems are feasible, economical, and durable.
