We’ve talked about innovations in architecture and design in the past, and in this episode, we look at construction materials themselves and innovative technologies like growing bricks from bacteria or fungus! Technologies like this could have fantastic applications here on earth, primarily in reducing the energy consumption and carbon emissions for heavy construction, but think about the applications in places like Mars, where, let’s be honest, a good brick is hard to find.
How do you think we could harness biogenic materials to make human life better? Let us know in the comments below.
