Cultivating Bio-hybrid Approaches for Architecture

Ayres, P. (Lecturer)

Activity: Talk or presentation Lecture and oral contribution


The design, fabrication and study of bio-hybrid architecture demands the development of new conceptual, representational and production tools. In this talk, Phil Ayres will position these developments as an enrichment – rather than a replacement – of familiar architectural toolsets, and discuss the relevance of bio-hybrids in the context of both general architectural objectives and
pressing environmental concerns.
