Throughout the voyage I have taken exploring environmental and ecological design I have ventured future into inspiration from nature, working alongside nature and even, working with nature for Product Design.
Terreform ONE (Open Network Ecology) are 'non-profit architecture group that promotes smart design in cities.' As their name suggests they work on a lot of environmentally conscious projects and look into natural ways to encourage social change, From pods for urban nuclear families to grow vegetation to experimentation with biomaterials. T1 experimented with a material called Mycelium whose microstructures originated from mushrooms to create products from 100% organic materials with minimal waste and energy expenditure. 'Our aim is to use grown materials to reshape the way people think about manufacturing products and genetic engineering.' (Terreform ONE).
I would love to explore the realm of biomaterials even further and possible apply them into what have already created or choose to design in the future.
