summary This proposal is about the design and prototyping of a Living Wall System (LIWAS) as a test bed for integrating concepts from biology into architectural design. The "Living Wall” is a new way of interpreting a wall system that we use in architecture and building. We try to integrate characteristics of living organisms into the wall design to harness some of the intriguing qualities of life into our built surroundings. Living Walls may include flows of water; they may move, adapt geometry and change appearance; they may be inhabited by algae, plants and other organisms and in general be “alive.” The framework of the proposal is the overlap between architectural design and biological research, using biomimicry as a methodology for information transfer between the fields (Image 1).
