A collaboration between artists, architects and scientists exploring architectural and biological structures from the macro to the nanoscale.

Through an ongoing series of workshops we are comparing architectural and biological methods and structures.

At our first workshop we found that architects and nano biologists often use the same or similar terms, and we compiled an archibio lexicon with definitions of the same word from both fields.

At the second workshop we came up with the idea of model making as a way of thinking together as a group.

Our long term aims are:

Designing human scale structures using basic principles found in life.
Redesigning life using basic principles in architecture.
