In response to Prof. Wood’s call for a paradigm change, I see such a change on the horizon. One that might actually change our economic framework as consumers start to become producers – and as 'money makes the world go around',...
I’m co-director of AVATAR (Advanced Virtual and Technological Architectural Research) in Architecture and Synthetic Biology at The School of Architecture and Construction, University of Greenwich, London.
My research investigates a new approach to building materials called ‘living architecture’, that suggests it is possible for our buildings to share some of the properties of living systems. My aim is to develop new ways of manufacturing and using resources that can ultimately evolve healthier, humane and ecologically positive cities.
