Today's video: Architecture that repairs itself? by Rachel Armstrong

Today's talk is Rachel Armstrong's talk. This is an old lecture, precisely in 2009, but the questions she posed are still very precious today. The title is 'Architecture that repairs itself?'
Venice is sinking. To save it, Rachel Armstrong says we need to outgrow architecture made of inert materials and, well, make architecture that grows itself. She proposes a not-quite-alive material that does its own repairs and sequesters carbon, too.
