The Work of Architecture in the Age of Synthetic Biology

AIA 0.5 LU | HSW

In the challenging context of accelerating climate dynamics, the core discipline of architectural design is evolving and embracing new forms of action. New York-based nonprofit Terreform ONE has established a distinctive design tactic that investigates projects through the regenerative use of natural materials, biological science, and the emergent field of socio-ecological design. This kind of approach uses actual living matter (not abstracted imitations of nature) to create functional elements and spaces. These future-based actions are not only grounded in social justice but are also far-reaching in their application of digital manufacturing and maker culture. In this session, learn strategies for tackling urgent environmental and urban social concerns through the integrated use of living materials and organisms.
