On May 12th 2016 I had the pleasure of participating in BioSalon II, which was held in Futuro House at Central Saint Martins, London. Curated by Professor in Design for Sustainable Futures and Director of the Design & Living Systems Lab, UAL, Carole Collet, the peer-gathering explored how the intersection of design and biological fabrication can open up to new ways of 'making' and crafting in the future.
Amongst those engaged in BioSalon's thought provoking conversations were bio artist, curator and lecturer, Heather Barnett; co-founder of Bento Lab, Phillipp Boeing; co-director of the BiotA Lab, Bartlett School of Architecture, Richard Beckett; and history and theory tutor at the Urban Morphogenesis Lab, UCL Visiting Lecturer, Manos Zaroukas.
