Micro Microbial Homes

Project team: Niek D’hondt, Matthijs De Block

Location: z33 House of Contemporary Art

Year: 2019

Micro-biodiversity is researched in relation to materials used in construction like concrete and bricks. As most contemporary building materials are based on the eradication and sterilisation of microorganisms, we should reevaluate these contexts.

Over 70 different micro contexts where created with natural materials. These spaces are small but big enough so that it creates a space where microorganisms can live, grow and ferment.
