    This book is a large compendium of recent bioengineering design projects or ideas e.g an eco friendly brick, pigeons that poop soap instead of toxins, a bridge formed out of tree roots, algae as biofuel, oysters as water filters, concrete that heals itself, etc It s very well organised, and each project comes with a concise description and many photos At the back of the book are interviews with some of the designers scientists involved in certain projects.I found this a thoroughly entertai This book is a large compendium of recent bioengineering design projects or ideas e.g an eco friendly brick, pigeons that poop soap instead of toxins, a bridge formed out of tree roots, algae as biofuel, oysters as water filters, concrete that heals itself, etc It s very well organised, and each project comes with a concise description and many photos At the back of the book are interviews with some of the designers scientists involved in certain projects.I found this a thoroughly entertaining and interesting read We get a good variation of selected projects from those very practical and addressing urgent needs e.g sustainability, food, fuel , to others that are artistic there s a whole section on it , futuristic bio buildings cities for instance or fantastical in nature like the one where pigeons poop soap And despite the complicated science behind it all, each project was explained simply enough for the layman to understand.A well recommended read for those interested in this field

    A great collection of different bio technological design fiction projects that explore the merger of science, nature and technology.

    This book is beautiful chock full of projects that illustrate the hybrid frontier , where living organisms are directly integrated into design The author seems to reflect a serious misunderstanding of biomimicry in the framing of his own focus area it is not beyond biomimicry , but rather fundamentally different from it Still, the projects featured are stunning in their aesthetics, and challenging in some of their approaches how much can we engineer biology before it is un natural I This book is beautiful chock full of projects that illustrate the hybrid frontier , where living organisms are directly integrated into design The author seems to reflect a serious misunderstanding of biomimicry in the framing of his own focus area it is not beyond biomimicry , but rather fundamentally different from it Still, the projects featured are stunning in their aesthetics, and challenging in some of their approaches how much can we engineer biology before it is un natural I was left feeling equal parts inspired and freaked out
