July 27: Why “Biofabrication” is the Next Industrial Revolution
Speaker: Suzanne Lee, Designer, Biofabrication Pioneer
What if we could “grow” clothes from microbes, furniture from living organisms and buildings with exteriors like tree bark? TED Fellow Suzanne Lee shares exciting developments from the field of biofabrication and shows how it could help us replace major sources of waste, like plastic and cement, with sustainable and eco-friendly alternatives.
