Advances in synthetic biology, bio-printing, computational design, and material engineering are already shifting the way we build and the best results are those that have integrated the complex, elegant, and efficient designs of the natural world into the built environment. To explore these possibilities, the Biodesign Competition is seeking applicants with “ bold and innovative visions for the future of construction at the intersection of the physical, the digital, and the biological. ” Will buildings be grown instead of assembled ? What would our buildings be like if they could grow to accommodate changes in their inhabitants or environment? What emerging material has the most potential for a biodesigned future?
