The vertical mycelium park in London


Biomimetics in architecture

The vertical mycelium park in London


Biomimetics in architecture
The concept of the vertical park is based on the study of mycelium biostructures and their complex application in the formation of building as alive structure.

This master project examines the lack of biomimetics in architecture. The architectural project design is based on the observation and experimentation of mycelium biostructures. The project design is made as porous spatial structure which works as the vector for mycelium cultivation, thus creating a vertical park that mimics the structure of a living organism. Therefore, the building is grown as a plant. It is adaptive bio-structure which changes in time. The project aims to restore the relationship between nature and human beings, improve the living environment and ecosystem diversity in the densely urbanized central part of London. It works as recreational and educational building which demonstrates the dialogue between different life forms. There is a cognitive and physical journey, through living organism in which visitors of the building are introduced to nature. However, this project is a manifesto drawing attention to the anthropocene.
