Healthy Buildings for Everyone: Tapping into Biology to Grow the Next Generation of Buildings
The way buildings are built hasn’t changed in almost 200 years and it’s hurting the environment. The construction industry is responsible for 60% of climate change emissions, one-third of landfill waste, and negative health effects. They continue to use dead materials like concrete, wood, and steel.
This presentation will explore how the XPRIZE Foundation is developing a way to grow buildings using synthetic biology, genomics, parametric modeling and 3D printing.
