Hy-Fi: Zero carbon emissions compostable structure, New York, NY

Hy-Fi is a cluster of circular towers over 12 m tall formed using 10,000 bricks that were naturally grown from shredded corn stalks and mushroom mycelium using recent advances in biotechnology combined with cutting-edge computation and engineering. Commissioned by the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program, brick production required no energy and produced no waste or by-products. After three months of cultural events, the structure was disassembled and the bricks decomposed to compost.
