Architecture/Architecture (International) (RIBA Part 2) MArch


The entanglement between the natural and the artificial seems to reach its limit through the emergence of fields such as synthetic biology. The proposed scheme is a collaboration between different departments having the same goal – discovering new materials, prototypes and experimenting with new spaces that are all shaped by the same field – synthetic biology. The spatial growth and distribution are split into public and private zones – a public walking zone, labs, offices, experimental spaces and future development. Located in Liverpool, this project explores the potential of reintegrating the relationship between architecture-nature-human. The Institute is ongoing experimentation based on biological system principles. The whole growth process is based on a specific timeline of 5000 days.
