Meristem Wall

binder jet 3d printing

The project is exploring the wall as a membrane rather than a barrier, mediating inside/outside environments for multi-species cohabitation.

Meristem Wall is a prototype for a 3D printed building envelope, featuring a dynamically controllable network of integrated air channels that allow a fluid relationship between inside and outside. The wall integrates functional lighting and electricity, windows, and a custom CNC knitted textile interior. It is fabricated through binder-jet sand 3d printing and points towards a climatically performative architecture, inclusive towards nonhuman life in urban contexts.

Meristem Wall has been exhibited at Time Space Existence Venice Biennale 2021.
