New York Designer David Benjamin´s firm The Living was selected to create a branching tower as a fun, captivating space for weekly music events, which also served as the experiment for a new example in design and manufacturing. The result was the tower constructed entirely from a compostable brick. Unlike traditional building materials, these bricks are not directly manufactured, but grown utilising mushrooms. Hy-Fi is a hybrid. It is both, familiar and completely new, biological and digital, precise and hand-made, and futuristic and immediate. Watch out for this new type of compostable brick that might lay the foundation for the future of sustainable architecture.
