Recent developments of renewable composites based on Mycelium have shown a tremendous potential in repurposing low value agricultural and industrial waste into high value sustainable products. In the construction industry, mycelium-based materials have already gained traction for non-structural applications, such as thermal and acoustical panels, thanks to their naturally high insulative properties as well as their resistance to fire. Despite these qualities, their application into architectural application is still disregarded. Lack of structural material properties and the poor integration into current development of digital manufacturing are amongst the factors preventing their use. In this project we want to investigate further material performance for mycelium composites for construction.
