Bio-Lantern is an environmentally conscious pavilion made entirely from materials that are natural, abundant, and local. Its biodegradable skin is a bio-plastic material developed from the site, without the use of petroleum typically found in commercialized plastic.
Through this material research, its interactive data display, a program of events, and cradle to cradle approach, it aims to shine a light on the many environmental challenges facing our future city. Underlying it all is a do-it-yourself making spirit that celebrates the power of creativity.
