Building with Fungi, Trees, Mud

Where people build, nature is snuffed out. Given that resources are finite and construction is such a huge factor in global warming, the dilemma is ever more apparent. Three Berlin projects show how to make allies of adversaries.


Interdisciplinary teams are drawing on state-of-the art technology to tap the potential of fungi, trees and mud.

Green materials lend these buildings not only an ecological quality but an entirely new character: they breathe, grow and take on a life of their own. Because we experience this architecture sensually, it encourages a conscious relationship with our environment, so the sustainable impact is not just about material.

Visitors to the exhibition can feel it for themselves in the spacious installations.
Sketches, plans, photographs and models explain the three approaches and their pioneering designs.


Architects, participants, artists:

Thomas Eller, Bruno Klomfar, Lehm Ton Erde Baukunst, MY-CO-X, Elisabeth Niggemeyer, OLA – Office for Living Architecture in collaboration with TUM, Reitermann Sassenroth Architekten, Ulrich Wüst
