Living Future is an innovative concept of sustainable biophilic installtion designed to provide clean water for public hand washing in over-populated

urban centers in order to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 and subsequent viruses.

The biophilic installation is a Living Machine® which functions to provide clean water for public hand washing to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 and subsequent viruses. The facade of the installation is created with illuminating vessels to house various of verdant plants —here the plants also act as filters in the ecosystem of this sustainable installation. A greywater filtration system within the apparatus reclaims the used water after handwashing to be reused in surrounding buildings in addition to feeding the live plants in the structure.

With its abundance of lush foliage, clean water, and the illuminating surface made of Nano leaf modular smart LED light panels; this piece is symbolic of the collective resilience through adversity and reflects a shift towards creative, communal efforts to nurture solutions for living and enjoying life amidst COVID-19.
