BY MAHA NASRALLAH

Maha Nasrallah and Maya Karkour share the adventurous experience of turning an old house into an exemplary, award winning eco-friendly home. Green magic, if you will! 

Taking something old and crumbling away, and refurbishing it and enhancing what is already there, is a step closer to eco-friendly living and homes. Reusing and recycling wood, and using natural materials, Maha and Maya were able to create and inspire more to do the same.

Standing at the Crossroads of Biology, Computation, and Design

BY DAVID BENJAMIN
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 18, 2015

David Benjamin is Principal at The Living, a design firm that brings architecture and design to life — literally. David expounds upon some of the amazing projects his firm uses to combine natural, biological intelligence and artificial intelligence to find new solutions to old problems.

Whether it’s using living mussels and sensors to understand changes in water quality, or growing biodegradable bricks using the root-like structures of mushrooms and agricultural waste, and then building a structure using 10 thousand of these, the projects in action are a small window into our future.

 This was "Presentation of the Day" on May 29th, 2017.
