This is a collaborative project by Leah Yao and Qianyi Zhang. We designed a small scale aquaponics system that can be utilized in an small space. Aquaponics mimics ecosystem, creating a closed-loop cycle composed of multiple living components. As nutrients and water being used and recycled, fish and plants thrive. While aquaponics is mostly being used in large scale production, this project focuses on the small scale. Users are able to have fresh herbs from this water efficient method of growing, and the biophilic design also helps to improve users’ concentration and mental health.
