Its objective is to enhance life quaility (air, water, temperature, food, waste, social cohesion…) in cities and in outer space mission by complementing human existence with fauna and flora.

Working with the NYU xDesign project hub, the space station is designed to generate its own energy and can provide energy to the building it rests upon, in the form of parasitic mutualism.
