Cultivated Building Materials:

Industrialized Natural Resources for Architecture and Construction

Prof. Dirk E. Hebel; Felix Heisel, Assistant Professorship of Architecture and Construction, ETH Zurich and ETH Singapore Centre

The 21st century will face a radical paradigm change in how we produce construction materials – a shift towards cultivating, breeding, raising, farming, or growing future resources. The book presents innovative cultivated building materials, like cement grown by bacteria or bamboo fibers as reinforcement for concrete. The book aims to build a bridge from scientific research to product development and application.

  • Industrialized cultivated building materials
