Betül Peker: Physarum Pavilion

Physarum Pavilion aims to give a space to organisms and examine the behavior of conscious and continuous movement. The human being has a tendency to welcome attractive parts of nature in their life in indoor and outdoor spaces. They do this by creating solutions, relationships between nature and human-made structures. What if we give a place to physarum that it could maintain its life and utilize architectural methods? Physarum Pavilion speculatively approaches architectural solutions and considers physarum as a resident.
