Experiment with creating (growing) new natural materials for design and construction use.
Over few weeks, mushroom’s mycelium will overgrow the 3d-printed mold.
When dried, grown material is expected to have strong dense properties and is organic and natural.
• Edible Oyster mushroom on straw
• PLA Polylactic acid biodegradable 3d-printing material derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch
• Here is image process of mycelium growth over 14 days:
