Inoculating Architecture Schwartz, Brandon


Inoculating Architecture manifests itself as a series of interventions designed to recalibrate human society’s relationship with nature in an effort to promote the mediation of environmental damage using Vancouver Landfill as a test site. These interventions are constructed with the aid of waste consuming fungus to convert humanity’s discarded materials into organic building components capable of curtailing the demand on extracted natural resources within the construction industry. The site’s public amenities are focused on bringing human society closer to the natural processes that support our everyday life by creating opportunities for the public to engage and interact with this remediative process facilitated by mycelium production.
