My design is a Material Driven Design (MMD) that is supported by biological and computational technologies to find new application ideas for the myceliumbased material which is still in development. As a designer, I am more interested in whether this new material will bring new requirements, new aesthetics, and new concepts in the design field. I have used different substrates to cultivate mycelial composites and tried to apply additive manufacturing techniques in the design process. And I have tried to use the living myceliumbased material and the plants they colonize for the Vertical Plant Walls for Urban Buildings.
