Designing the Future of Food
– Novel Biomaterials and Flavors of Data
Science enables designers to interact with, and even program, living systems – it’s alive and kickin! We have entered an era in which we reinvent what food is through science, data and new business models combining elements. Biomass production with bio-digital architecture, a synthesis of building integrated farming and urban agriculture, are moving into our cites. Changing flows of matter and energy will alter their “metabolism”. What do these changes portend for society, design, architecture and our plates? Do we see a process where these different disciplines converge? These are some of the themes this year’s The Material Gap will put on the table for you to digest.
