"Grow your own home with ancient and modern tech"
By Tiffany O'Callaghan, CultureLab editor.
"An architect and designer with a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Mitchell Joachim is the founder of the non-profit green design group Terreform ONE and a leader in the "urbaneering" movement, which invites communities to participate in urban design projects. His latest project is a collaboration between architects and biologists to construct a biosynthetic seat. New Scientist talked to him about experimenting with synthetic biology, his controversial "meat house" project and whether one day we'll be able to grow our own homes - and villages."
