“… fabricating a monster. If the building can heal, if the building can grow, and if the building can even move, then it is no longer a building.”


Wilfredo Mendez essay Transtectonica was recently published at Transhumanity Network. The essay synthesizes a series of investigations on living-based technologies for a better architecture for the future. Such [bio]technologies will foster the building’s enhancement of its ecological outcomes and resilient capabilities. As well as transhumanity seeks to foster the human body upgrading thru avant-garde technology, Transtectonica seeks to upgrade buildings thru bluring the boundaries between architectural technology and biological design.

The same article was also published at The Institute for Ethics & Emerging Technologies!
