Speculative Scenarios: Microbial Collaborations
INVISIBLE ARCHITECTURE, SPATIAL ECOLOGIES:
The world below our feet, deep in the soil, is full of potential solutions to design strategies and interventions. The micro- and multiscalar architectures, invisible to us underground, are ecologies that rely on specific spatial conditions to function.
Speculative Scenarios: Microbial Collaborations is a growing body of design research comprised of concept sketches for microorganism collaboration for a cleaner environment. Each concept is rooted in hard science including soil sciences, microbiology, and in situ environmental management.
Interdisciplinary industrial and environmental design ideas include:
The Metagenomic Field Kit
The Biomass Synthesis Indicator System
Design Urgency Field Manual: Remediating Post Industrial Waste with Biodesign
