Over the last few years the theme of urban agriculture integrated with experimental green strategies has spread in the discipline of architecture trying to involve new technologies from the concept phase till the construction. Unfortunately this attitude is up to now simply theoretical and it attempt to provide practical examples is still missing. Another gap is represented by the fact that traditional architecture is no longer adequate to answer to these issues. This book, therefore, provides a possible strategy to follow through the description of a project. Parametric architecture and the usage of computational tools are presented as a possible answer to those problematic and as a way to connect new technologies in the field of green architecture together with the program of a specific building. In particular the case study is an algae eco-platform for the city of Venice in which the invasive algae that grow in the Lagoon are collected and converted in different kind of goods. This example should help architects to understand the potential of new sustainable mechanisms integrated in architecture and the potential of computational tools.
