The In-Vitro Meat House Puts Pork Jerky to Good Use

One day, we may be living behind walls of pork. At least, that’s what the eco-architects at Terreform One are insisting with their in-vitro meat house.

Mitchell Joachim and the firm’s other architects have designed a model home (football-sized) made of laboratory-grown animal flesh. The prototype of the in-vitro meat house is constructed of dried pig flesh grown in a Petri dish, but it still has a long way to go before it can be converted into a life-sized, living house.

Joachim, who wants to create ‘performative facades’ that act as if they are living, said, “The thing died. There is no way to keep it alive. It has no circulatory system, no immune system.”
