Jenifer Haider Chowdhury: In this exhausting world, people are suffering so much. They are drowning in negative emotional energies. To survive, people need rebirth of their souls with positivity by indulging in a nature-embracing healing process, a new start – INCEPTION.

This project is a public meditation space, located in the middle of the forest which offers a biomimetic open fluid structure that resembles the organic complex formation of nature while expressing utmost beauty, healing transition, and sacred gratification. Forest is a place where thousands of different organisms meet and they have a spiritual chemistry among them. Day by day we are realizing that being in the nature is the greatest healing process for living healthy and happy.

So, how it would feel if in the future people didn’t need to pollute the environment by manufacturing cement, concrete, or steel to live, instead they could grow natural organisms to live in them because If we want to build something considering nature, it should not be like a built structure. Instead, it should be an organism grown from nature to contribute to both human beings and the whole ecosystem. How fascinating that would be! So, this project exhibits a captivating futuristic bio-mimicking structural idea to live in a new way.

The main idea is to innovate new hybrid bio-structure by combining bio-properties of three natural organs: hydrostatic skeleton, mushroom gills, and its mycelium. Hydrostaic skeleton is composed of soft tissue filled with incompressible fluid like water/blood etc. It is found in soft- bodied creatures. To support this skeleton, they use muscle walls to create hydrostatic fluid pressure which makes the soft body strong and stable. It is best for free-flowing organic form.

In the proposed hybrid bio-structure, we use mushroom gills as the supporting muscle walls because gills work as reinforced structural elements to hold mushroom cap. Also, mycelium is made of protein, chitin, sugars, and all coated with gel-like substance which makes structure strong, flexible and durable. Combining all these creates a reinforced stable fluid bio-structure that resembles organic natural forms.

So, the hybrid bio-structure is completely biodegradable and contributes to nature. There is no wastage and pollution to the ecosystem and it upcycles natural resources like we can use rainwater as incompressible fluid for manufacturing the structure. Also, inspired by all mushroom bio-properties, the new structure can purify air, reduce CO2, neutralize germs, and absorb radiation. These express sustainability by restoring mother nature.

This project brings bio-light that is inspired by the bio-properties of fireflies. In fireflies, oxygen reacts with luciferin and converts this chemical energy into glowing cold light. So it will not heat the surroundings. Also gives the impression of an organic glowing light that blends with the whole bio-structure, not like a separate bulb.The color concept of this project is also inspired by the blueish-white Indigo Milk Cap Mushroom as blue color symbolizes serenity, stability, and calmness while white symbolizes purity.

The AI (Midjourney) generated visualizations express the beauty of this project. For healing our inner soul, beauty isn’t a luxury. It’s a necessity. In biomimicry architecture, beauty comes from its purpose. That’s why emulating nature in this meditation space gives bold impressions because nature is the greatest healer.
