Beskrivelse

As the construction industry struggles to deal with its impact on the climate, a new crop of people with big ideas are looking for alternative materials to build with.

Phil Ayres, an architect and associate professor of architecture in Copenhagen, says the future of building materials might not be high tech polymers or specialty metals — but mushrooms.  

Ayres joined Spark host Nora Young to discuss how he and his team are looking at how mycelium — the fibrous network that exists underneath a fungus — might be used as an environmentally sustainable building material.
