MEDIA DESIGN | Bachelor Design Project | SCAFFOLDS

How might we collaborate with and learn from non-human entities to form symbiotic relationships that grow architecture rather than assemble it?

Students worked through a three-phase program with chosen organisms (slime mold, plants, funghi or mineral crystals):

1.Familiarization: understanding the organisms, desk-research and information sythesis, documentation of patterns of growth

2.Collaboration: programming patterns of growth, application of findings to physical experiments

3.Speculation: extrapolation beyond the time and physical constraints of the project, design of future applications
