The research project «Bio-integrating Material Development» is dedicated to the development of new functional materials for urban construction, architecture, product design and agriculture. Trough the combination of traditional materials und digital construction and processing methods with organisms, organic processes and especially biological growth we intend to investigate sustainable materials, different material processes and alternative forms of poiesis.
