The design comes as a powerful statement of the wellness benefits resulted by employing living systems within the creation of architectural space. Initial landscape interventions are developed as a flexible public space, which in time is populated with complex scaffolds designed to trigger mycelium growth.
The scaffolds are programmed to present a different array of density gradients and materiality for controlling and guiding the desired growth and its life-cycle alternation. The result is a dynamic building system that evolves and performs in accordance with environmental conditions such as light and humidity but also human inhabitation.
