Bio-Homing describes the entry of bio-intelligence into the constructive architecture and social practice of housing. Future forms of living no longer exclude bio-organisms, but integrate biology, humans and technology. Biotic developments such as urban aquaponics and entomophagy, growing constructions or living building shells will have an impact on the way we live. Food is no longer produced in the countryside, but can be grown, harvested and processed digitally controlled locally in homes and other neighborhood organized units. Revolutionary living concepts such as the legendary kitchenette will gain importance again and change the social structures of living. The constructive integration of plants and animals in the building envelope will enable an improvement in local biodiversity. The development of building structures made of renewable fungal substrates will also have an impact on living. This topic will be researched under the term Bio-Homing.
The research will take place in cooperation with the Institute for Living and Design of the University of Stuttgart under Univ. Prof. Dr. phil. habil. Christine Hannemann.
