Parco Solare Sud, A3 Regione Calabria | Dyson Goralska

bio|duct proposes algal bioreactors fitted to viaducts between Scilla and Bagnara, strategically using traffic on the new A3 as a source of bio-fuel for the local economy, transforming Calabria’s autoroute from a mere highway to something much more poetic.

The 17 viaducts have a coastal facade over 42 hectares, with a potential yield over 5 million litres. Canalello Viaduct has 8,970m2 coastal facade yielding enough to drive a car 1.4 million miles.

The project makes imaginative re-use of redundant structures with an innovative approach to sustainability. Competition 2011.
