Biosynthetic Sustainable Design

The research area is rapidly progressing and opens new possibilities that are unimaginable today. We can now culture meat and milk without using animals, our lamps can be replaced by luminescent plants and fabric, and modified bacteria can produce clean fuel for our cars and cotton for our clothes. 

We are heading towards a future where we will probably be able to change organisms however we want, creating biological circuits, like the digital information technology we have today. This development might be hazardous to our way of life, but it might also open up great possibilities; this is where design can determine the outcome.

The project will, through a design perspective, open up for new approaches to the subject. It will investigate the possibilities: what is desirable and what is not. It will strive towards new visualizations of future and present.
