Small-scale artisanal industries across the globe face a tremendous challenge: they must manage their wastewater with limited resources. Urgent solutions are needed to tackle the increasing water crisis, as toxic chemicals continue to pollute up to 80% of our surface and groundwaters. Bio-ID Lab from the Bartlett School of Architecture presents Indus, a simple and accessible modular wall system constructed from leaf-like clay tiles designed to treat polluted water. The tiles vein-like channels hold a seaweed-based hydrogel containing microalgae that can capture heavy metals from wastewater. Indus can be readily installed in rural areas, fabricated from locally available materials and construction techniques.

The tiled wall will be installed at 21 Thurloe Place for the duration of London Design Festival.
