Architectural Mushroom

Fungi is adapted into sculptural and architectural designs

Implications - The incorporation of fungi-based materials into various architectural and sculptural designs has implications for a variety of industries, particularly those specializing in art and design, architecture, and eco-friendly production and consumption. The experimentation of fungi-based materials in building items that are typically "wasteful," in a way that actually reduces waste, serves a future in which consumers and brands alike are able to live and produce in a way that lessens their environmental impact.
