For our final project, we were assigned to “take responsibility for our own existence in the context of climate change by creating a culture of “care” that includes caring for the earth and caring for the people.” This task in itself brought so much to mind. Inspired by a previous project, I wanted to focus on the idea of mycelium bricks, a material seen as the future building blocks in architecture.
My main concept was to create a small bird house out of these mycelium bricks, and demonstrate it to the public as a way of hearing what the general opinion for this would be. I interviewed strangers that I came across, and documented their answers in the presentation below. It is obvious that the younger generation is more willing and interested in a change because we feel that we are responsible for the mess the world and environment is in.
