A Science of Buildings That Can Grow—and Melt Away



#Science #Buildings #Growand #Soften

Whereas the pandemic heightened hypothesis about what town of the longer term will appear to be, architect Neri Oxman says she is sticking with a blueprint primarily based on a core precept of her work: In years to return, buildings shall be grown, not constructed.

At Massachusetts Institute of Expertise’s Media Lab from 2010 to 2021, Ms. Oxman based and directed the Mediated Matter group, a workforce researching in areas together with computational design, digital fabrication, supplies science and artificial biology. There, she created a area she calls materials ecology.
