What are we learning?

Our ongoing research

The mycelium-waste-pigeon-tower is a constant process of one state moving into the next. After the mushroom harvest, the old mycelium bricks are used to build a tower, a tower aspiring to become soil, the soil bringing forth the corn, the corn eaten by resident pigeons that fertilize the soil with their droppings while corn foliage is turned into blocks of mycelium substrate to once again grow mushrooms. We consider material decomposition an integral part of the design process and we encourage visitors and passersby alike to reflect on decay and the intricacies of living cycles.
