Designing with the Sea: Marine Biomaterials in Architecture
Gastvortrag - Kathryn Larsen

18:00 Online via Zoom

Seaweed, seagrass and shells have been used for centuries around the world to build castles, forts, and homes. Through working with scientists, seaweed farmers, marine biologists and NGOs, Studio Kathryn Larsen researches how we can use these materials again in architecture responsibly, and in analogue architectural representation.
