Fungal Architectures exhibit at the ‘70% Less’ exhibition

We are delighted to have been selected to exhibit at the ‘70% Less CO2 – conversion to a viable age’ exhibition, held at the Royal Danish Academy, Copenhagen. Our exhibit is organised around four thematics related to on-going research enquiries within the project. These are:
1) Constituents
2) Composites
3) Computation
4) Constructions

1. Constituents – what are mycelium-based materials and what are they composed of?
2. Composites – how can we tune the properties of mycelium composites? Here, we showcase work in the structuring of substrates using orientated fibres to produce anisotropic designs.
3. Computation – how do we sense and compute with living mycelium and mycelium-based composites?
4. Construtions – what new construction approaches do mycelium -based materials suggest? Here, we demonstrate our approach using Kagome weaves composed of synthetic and organic materials that act as stay-in-place moulds and reinforcements.

The exhibition is open from 07.10.2021 – 14.01.2022, every week day from 1000-1700. Admission is free. For more details, see here.
