About this book

Bioluminescent algae, symbiotic aquariums, self-healing concrete, clavicle wind instruments and structures made from living trees – biology applied outside the lab has never been so intriguing, or so beautiful. Bio Design examines the thrilling advances in the field, showcasing some seventy projects (concepts, prototypes and completed designs) that cover a range of fields – from architecture and industrial design to fashion and medicine.

The revised and expanded edition features twelve new projects: Hy-Fi (by David Benjamin); One Central Park, Sydney (Jean Nouvel); Guard from Above (Sjoerd Hoogendoorn and Ben de Keijzer); Cell-laden Hydrogels for Biocatalysis (Alshakim Nelson et al); Zoa (Modern Meadow); Amino Labs (Julie Legault and Justin Pahara); Algae and Mycelium Project (Eric Klarenbeek, Studio Klarenbeek & Dros); Interwoven and Harvest (Diana Scherer); Concrete Honey (John Becker and Geoff Manaugh); Bistro In Vitro (Next Nature Network); Circumventive Organs (Agi Haines); Quantworm Mine (Liv Bargman and Nina Cutler). It also includes a new 'how-to' section at the end (Tips for Collaboration/FAQs/Further Resources), as well as a fully revised introduction.
