The majority of marine infrastructures is made from concrete, thanks to its unique characteristics: it is strong, easy to mass-produce, and relatively durable. However, because the surface area of the concrete is homogenous and smooth, as a result of mass production technologies, it is difficult for the ecosystems species to create nests. Biopod is a reinterpretation of a common tetrapod breakwater unit, and intends to bridge the structural and functional gaps between the natural habitats of marine biology and submerged concrete developments by adopting a suitable surface that can help local marine biology to continue thriving on and around the concrete infrastructure, while still being mass-production compliant.
