Standing five meters tall, the structure's skin is composed of cellulose, chitosan, and pectin – the planet's most abundant materials, according to Media Matter Group, says Olivia Ladanyi in her article on Dezeen.com.

The project, which has been shortlisted in the sustainable design category for this year's Dezeen Awards, demonstrates the application of water-based robotic fabrication at a scale close to those of natural ecologies.

"Derived from organic matter, printed by a robot, and shaped by water, this work points towards a future where the grown and the made unite," said Mediated Matter Group.
