/// MOLD INSULATION FAÇADE
IMAGINED BY: NEND Workshop “Re-Imagine the House”
KEYWORDS: mold, insulation, recovered paper
How simple would it be if we could eliminate our waste by simply throwing it into parts of our building? The wall would digest and make use of the waste. A pizza box including leftovers enters the wall, is crushed and then blown into a cavity that is either inside or outside the wall. The moisture of the waste develops mold which spreads throughout the entire volume of the cavity. The mold generates heat which contributes to the passive thermal capacity of the wall. Those daring to have a look inside the cavity would be able to observe the chemical process, and for even greater impact the cavity’s skin could be transparent.
