    Aims and Scope

    Built to Grow investigates patterns of growth and dynamics in nature with the aim of creating a new “living architecture” that can be applied to architectonic designs. It examines biological processes to identify basic principles of growth and translate them into exemplary architectonic ideas and visions. The project brings together experts from the fields of architecture, biology, art, mechatronics, and robotics.
