2. “Living materials”

A matter of life and death

Will we at some point look back at these years and call them the “petrochemical age”? Are we approaching an era of materials which are embedded in ecological systems? Is the “cycle” the appropriate way to think about sustainable Design or should we rather think in networked systems? What are the differences between non-living materials like minerals or metals and “stuff” that is alive?

Show us something about the design of life using living organisms.
