Public Talk // BUILDING TOGETHER – Nature Co-Design & Living Architecture // SynBio4Arch Project @Doulix – Venice (IT)
Can synthetic biology make our homes breathe? Can fungi make sustainable tiles?
Join us in Venice on September 10th, 2021, as part of Building Together, where we’ll explore the notion of nature co-design as a new framework to think and manufacture sustainable materials for architecture and interior design.
The conference brings together experts from different disciplines to address sustainability in manufacturing for architecture and interior design by sharing real-case applications that incorporate nature co-design principles into the design and manufacturing practices.
The line-up will include: Maurizio Montalti (Founder and Director of Officina Corpuscoli, co-Founder and Chairman of Mogu), Massimo Portincaso (Chairman of Hello Tommorow, Officinae Bio, Deepwave Ventures), Davide de Lucrezia (Co-founder & CEO of Explora Biotech – Doulix), Rachel Armstrong (Professor of Experimental Architecture at the School of Architecture at University of Newcastle | 2010 Senior TED Fellow) and Enrico Vianello (TAMassociati).
Building Together will explore new design frameworks to address the negative environmental and social impacts of building by utilising design methods, materials, energy, and development spaces that are not detrimental to the surrounding ecosystem or communities. The philosophy is to ensure that the actions taken today do not have a negative consequence for future generations and comply with the principles of social, economic, and ecological sustainability.
