Hemp structure – Walls

Tests aim to explore system behaviours on a different hemp arrangement. Two kinds of “walls” follow the hemp bending.

Sequential operations
  • design and lasercut the plexi structure: plexiglass, diameter 95mm, thickness 2mm (thanks to MakeInBo)
  • build hemp structures: distance between plates 85/50mm
  • put the structure in a glass jar with some ml of water
  • autoclave, 121°C – 20′
  • (bio)plastic #2.1.2 spread on fibers
  • inoculate with POS1 – Pleurotus Ostreatus
  • growth in a dark room at 22.5°C for 18 days

Sample: #3.2.1 _ Simmetric Wall
