Waterfront: ‘Mushi’

Mushi (pronounced Moo-shi) is the first wetland made completely out of biomaterials. Wetlands are typically made from plastics that degrade and contaminate bioecology. Mushi is completely biocompatible taking the form of three floating, interlocking triangular-shaped mycelium modules. Mushi is currently being trialled at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne.

Repose: An Economy Class Aircraft Cabin Designed For Sleep

Its central feature is a lateral sleep interface that turns the most dreaded seats in the economy cabin into the most desirable seats without affecting the cabin passenger capacity.
