Natalie is a PhD candidate exploring the relationship between mycelium, 3D printing and computational form. She runs a series of design studios for the Masters of Architecture Program at RMIT, about the fusion of biological, living materials with architectural applications. Natalie founded BioLab Studio in 2017 where she showcases her work of realtime robotics, 3D printed sculptures, computational drawings and the robotic fabrication of mycelium infused with clay.

Featured Project Description:
Bio Scaffolds’ is a catalogue of bespoke 3D printed sculptures printed from wood-based filament infused with bioplastic. Each form is designed to foster and orchestrate the biological growth of mycelium(the fibrous root of a mushroom)through aesthetic features such as posterity, textured scales, veins, and internal pathways for the organism to seep through. Over time, the sculpture sacrifices itself as the mycelium spreads its hyphae tips and consumes the wood-based filament, assuming its shape.
