Bob Hendrikx is exploring a living future. What if our everyday products are alive? We live in a world in which a dead tree has more value than a living tree. Let's change that. We strive for a fundamental new relationship with the natural world. What if we no longer work with dead materials, but with living organisms? Imagine buildings that grow, breathe and heal themselves. This talk takes you beyond the limits of your imagination by turning science-fiction into reality.
