Publisher: Birkhauser 2017 Editors: Dirk E. Hebel and Felix Heisel ISBN: 9783035611069 Format: Hardcover, 216pp, 280mm x 220mm
The 21st century faces a radical change in how we produce construction materials - a shift towards cultivating, breeding, raising, farming, or growing future resources.
This book presents new industrialised production methods and innovative cultivated building materials, like cement grown by bacteria, bricks made of mushroom mycelium or bamboo fibers as reinforcement for concrete.
Spanning scientific research to product development and application, the book builds a bridge between the academic and the professional world of architecture.
