Living Architecture


This project visualizes possible futures where living matter is used in architecture while material and production experiments are carried out for the sake of bringing those futures closer to us.

Building with living matter and producing by decomposing blurs the perceived divide between waste and resources and thereby becomes an article of interest for the circular economy. By generating illustrations with AI, concepts of living architecture come alive and feeds the imagination of what that may look like.

Living Architecture is a project carried out by Raffaele Errichiello, researcher at UmArts, Umeå School of Architecture, supported by Ellinor Werner at RISE.
