Two projects of particular interest by Ariel Schwartz and Mike Chino. Archimorph began researching similar topics, using Bacillus pasteurii, also known as the cementer bug in 2007 as a ‘natural 3d printing device’ which would create habitable structures out of sand. Seed bombing technologies have also been of interest since early 2009 in the attempt to formulate a recent project for both the 2009 IaaC 3rd Annual Advanced Architecture Contest and the 2010 d3 Housing competition where genetically modified plant species are dropped into slums, like Manila, creating sustainable housing.
