RE-HABITAT is a modular coral rehabilitation system to regrow coral. It imitates a symmetry sphere as a stable construction to defend against the ocean current. After being severely damaged by blast fishing and coral mining, coral reefs can be rehabilitated over large scales, using this relatively inexpensive technique as this design fits any seabed. This bio-gallery invites symbiotic algae to grow with corals through the various breathing holes in the main structure.
