William Myers – BIODESIGN
We are pleased to present William Myers at the 4th ECOLOPES TALK on September 6th, 5PM CET.
William Myers is a curator, author, and teacher based in Amsterdam. His book Biodesign (2012 and 2018 editions) identifies the emerging practice of integrating biological processes into design and architecture. It is published by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York and Thames & Hudson worldwide. Biodesign is the next step beyond biology-inspired approaches to design and fabrication. It refers to the incorporation of living organisms as essential components in design, enhancing the function of the finished work. The depicted structure is made by David Benjamin and consists out of Mycelium bricks grown from agricultural waste and fungi, reflective plastic molds, repurposed scaffolding boards.
