To address the environmental impact of construction, we propose a living and ecological architecture. Inspired by ecosystems of forests, we use mushrooms to recycle waste like cardboard, wood and market crates. Fungus’ root system, called mycelium, feed on these organic waste to grow and transform them into a biological and living material.
We transform the waste into a substrate that we can 3d print into complex shapes, conducive to the development of fungus. The interstices created by our shapes concentrate moisture essential to mycelium growth. The mycelium colonize and appropriate theses shapes and transform them into unique architectural elements.
