Emerging research indicates the potential for the diverse indoor microbiome offered by plant-based systems to improve human health and wellbeing.

Active Modular Phytoremediation Systems (AMPS) represents a long standing investigation into the potential of scalable and modular building-integrated plant systems and their associated microbiomes to improve indoor air quality, thereby reducing the energy intensive demands of mechanical air handling systems. 

How can we dramatically transform urban environments through building-integrated agriculture?
