when i was in manitoba, mark west touched upon local utilization of resources to build. . . he mentioned his colleague shigeru ban and a couple of people growing coral. this was during his "lecture" on eladio dieste. . . a brick master who you should study and learn aboot.

we have been developing biological and crystalline methods to perform molecular bottom-up assembly, ultimately to grow buildings. Our initial experiments have been to grow carbon nanotubes in a variety of structures including the set of sacred geometry. Future studies will include dna/protien assemblies. Look up DNA tiling and virus assembly.
