Movie: Eric Klarenbeek's Mycelium 3D-printed fungus could build houses

Movie: Eric Klarenbeek's Mycelium 3D-printed fungus could build houses | mdnet stuff ov interest | Scoop.it
Eric Klarenbeek, who made a chair out of 3D-printed fungus, says the technique could be used to create larger, more complex structures.
Stefano Bonifazi's insight:

I miceli, radici dei funghi, si fanno crescere in stampi per realizzare un sostituto del polistirolo, in questo caso lo stampo è realizzato in polilattato con una stampante 3d, poi riempito di materiale biologico e spore. I miceli crescono all'interno riempiendo lo stampo. Brilliant!

This audio slideshow shows how spirulina, an edible, high-protein cyanobacteria, is harvested on Thai roofs.
Stefano Bonifazi's insight:

Crescere Spirulina sul tetto di un albergo. La spirulina è una sostanza che fa molto bene, l'OMS la considera l'unica sostanza conosciuta che può fornire una dieta completa. Per questo la sua coltivazione in ambiente urbano è una buona notizia.

Urbanistica parametrica open data, strumenti e tecniche per la progettazione della città di domani

The modern city is a complex and dynamic system that, today, can benefit from the almost infinite possibilities of technology scattered ubiquitously, changing the way the city talks to us, and how we live and interact within it.All this represents an incredible opportunity in planning the city of tomorrow, but it is not enough. To find the right answers to the questions that big data generates about the world we live in, it is necessary to use new tools for urban planning that allows planners to develop and use, with total control, the new resources available, which would be unmanageable and redundant in traditional analysis and planning processes.
Considering the traditional city strategic plans as obsolete and inadequate to guide the transformation of a complex and extremely dynamic system such as the modern city, it is possible to explore an innovative approach based on the use of computational tools to optimize the performance of the system in relation to the goals of the project.

Frank Gehry Is Still the World's Worst Living Architect

Frank Gehry Is Still the World's Worst Living Architect | mdnet stuff ov interest | Scoop.it
While it's been widely known for at least a decade that Frank Gehry is the world's worst living architect, it's not entirely clear why some people—mostly very rich clients—haven't picked up on this yet. The utterly god awful Biomuseo in Panama, an eco-discovery center that cost at least $60 million and took a decade to construct, is only the most recent case in point.

Trovo questa critica feroce piuttosto adeguata.
