What if you didn't need plasterboard and metal for constructing a building but could utilize biological materials? Maybe you would like to live in a tiny Hobbit-house? That's just what futurist architect Mitchell Joachim is exploring with his concept of: Don't build your home, grow it. Joachim is a founder of TerraformOne, a radical attempt to combine art, architecture, urban, and ecological features in theoretical design projects. The sustainablity and resilience of cities may begin to take on many new forms if any of his ideas become adopted.
