The Urban Purification Series is a series of conceptual models for a futuristic scenario where we have replaced plant life in urban environments with technologically enhanced creatures.

THE SCENARIO - Due to deadly spores being released by plant life around the planet, these strange looking creatures become an integral part of our everyday lives. The creatures manage a number of issues presented by the lack of trees and other plant life in urban areas, such degradation in air quality, soil strength, drainage, biodiversity and heat regulation.


The U-P ONE is just one of the models in this series. It is a genetically engineered biological organism living in a mechanical shell. The purpose of this particular model from the Urban Purification series is to clean the air in populated urban environments and turn CO2 rich air into clean and breathable air.
