The interviewees Petra Gruber, Angelo Vermeulen, Thomas Speck and Julian Vincent circle around the following questions:
*Why do we need to look at nature in architecture and engineering?
This presents and introduction to both biomimetics and the GrAB project. It also clarifies why this research was conducted in the first place.
*Your view on agency, emergence, resilience?
A bit of a broader (and somewhat philosophical) perspective on growing architecture.
*How can this attitude contribute to a better world?
Implicitly we all believe it's important to do this kind of research. Here we voice why we think it's important. Beyond mere practical reasons, this is not such an easy question. But that makes it even more interesting.
*How will the future look like and what are the obstacles you envision?
