___The research of architect, physicist and sciencefiction author Dr. Rachel Armstrong is aimed at developing metabolic materials to be applied in the built environment. Armstrong foresees a living archtecture, capable of ‘healing’ the environment.

In the workshop Dr. Rachel Armstrong leads the participants along the conceptual and chemical steps of making an in-organic Traube Cell. Starting from current technologies, the participants develop scenario’s to implement metabolic materials in the built environment. How can archictecture literally come to live?
