Mycelium

Mycelium Mycelium, from an organic substance to a construction material: the development of mushroom-based bricks for renovating habitats.

Mycelium, from an organic substance to a construction material: the development of mushroom-based bricks for renovating habitats.

The North of France’s mining area is a famous territory for its productive history that also reveals an innovative past. An important plasturgic production had its place during the coal epic. This project emerges from this tradition between industry and innovation. It suggests to reinterpret plastic through a natural fabrication process’ product made of mushrooms : mycelium. Its constructive, thermal and aesthetic abilities make it a promising material. By introducing it into an accompanied auto-construction system it allows to link three scales that are the matter itself, the micro-economy that it creates and the people that makes a territory live. 100% natural, 100% biodegradable, waste consuming and accessible to all, mycelium creates its proper microarchitecture that is good for all, between energy saving, industrual production and collectif imaginary.
