Transforming Architecture Through Symbiosis - Merging the world with nature and technology
Daylight investigations - Region 3: The Americas

The project aims to redesign our public infrastructure (lights) through sustainable material intervention. Such as adopting long-lasting self-growing and glowing bio-integrated materials to provide social resilience for local communities. It would provide services, goods, and future income for the community.
The structure can be built with agricultural waste, such as wood chips, bound with mycelium structure and luciferase particles, causing it to “glow” at night.
The living organism (building) functions as an infrastructure that supports the needs of citizens. With access to light, people no longer need to worry about their safety walking home. One believes this would be a module for solving social issues and infrastructure shortages in many parts of the world.
