Architects Envision a Future Where Homes Are Grown

Interesting concepts shared by Dezeen x Mini Living:

The latest movie in our Dezeen x MINI Living series explores architect Maria Vergopoulou’s concept for self-build micro homes made of bioplastic, which came third in the Dezeen x MINI Living Future Urban Home Competition.

The proposal, called Cocoon BioFloss, features clusters of pod-like homes made from thin bioplastic fibres, which resemble strands of candy floss.

Traditional building materials such as brick and concrete would be replaced by bioplastic, a renewable material derived from agricultural bi-products.

The material’s ingredients would be harvested from organic matter such as sunflowers, potatoes and apples, which would be grown on site by the buildings’ occupants.

Vergopoulou said this would would make Cocoon BioFloss “accessible and affordable”, as well as sustainable.
