Free Webinar: Bioterials
Event Description

This course will define bioterials as materials that utilize the growth of living organisms in their manufacture, discuss bio-manufacturing and bio-fabrication, and show some of the carbon sequestering processes being developed by researchers to change impact of building to a regenerative process. We will look specifically at three novel processes of "mycotecture" developed by the speaker that use circular resources and fungi to build regenerative architecture.
