This folio documents an installation that was constructed by the members of a Living Architecture Systems Group workshop at Domaine de Boisbuchet, Poitiers, France, in 2019. Specialized organic power cells employing natural potatoes as an electrolyte source were used within the installation. The folio presents a step-by-step guide of assembly for main parts of this organic power system.
