Imagine our future living in cities where buildings are covered with photosynthetic membranes and vertical gardens, collecting the sun's energy and producing food for urban citizens. Imagine greening desert coastlines and producing food for millions of people. Imagine algae systems that recover and recycle polluting agricultural and animal wastes into high value animal food and biofertilizers.

Future visions like these, harnessing the promise of algae, 30 times more productive than terrestrial plants, are being entered into the International Algae Competition by architects, designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, students and teams from across the globe. Registrants from 22 countries are already submitting some amazing entries.


Competition objectives are to create an open source collaboratory that expands and shares a vision for algae in our future with design ideas for algae production landscapes, sustainable and affordable algae production systems for medicines, food, feed, energy, nutrients, water remediation, carbon capture and new algae foods.

The Competition is open to everyone, anywhere in the world: algae enthusiasts, architects, builders, entrepreneurs, designers, growers, scientists, food developers, cooks, students and teams. Registration and submission deadline is October 11, 2011.

We hope you will join the International Algae Competition
Track 1: Algae Landscape Design
How will algae systems be integrated into future landscapes, farms and communities, what will they look like and how will they work?
What are the best designs, engineering and systems for algae production to work on a community scale or distributed model?
What will be the next algae foods and recipes and the future uses of algae as a food and feed ingredient that will transform our health?
Best Green Wishes,

Robert Henrikson and Mark Edwards for the International Algae Competition
