Can we redefine the relationship between material, humans, and the environment? Our species has left a huge mark on our planet. This project challenges expectations surrounding the materials that form the foundation of existing design norms. We can design and educate our way out of our dependence on oil, gas, bricks, plastic, and steel, but it requires exposing students to radical new means of production.
At the junction of biology and design, biofabrication provides a plethora of options to engage students in the growth of materials, along with the underlying life science that drives this production. We present some of our own biofabrication efforts and facilitate discussion about the ways that biofabrication can be utilised in a variety of contexts.
