AQUASTOR by Zihao Design

Aquastor is desertification remediation vessels produced using mixed materials from desert resources.

Aquastor vessels can promote soil growth in desert areas and slow the advance of desertification. Aquastor will be placed on the edge of the desert in a triangular arrangement with a spacing of 1 meter to build a barrier.

The temperature difference between the inside and outside of the vessels allows external water vapor to enter the desert and reduce the evaporation rate.

Eventually, the Aquastor vessels will be completely degraded and turned into nutrients for the land.


This project has been longlisted in the sustainable design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
