Mycelium-Based Composites As Acoustic Architectural Components

The use of biodegradable materials as building components can: 1.) decrease the amount of construction and demolition waste generated; 2.) eliminate the reliance on fossil fuels during material manufacturing; and 3.) reduce the embodied carbon required for construction. This research analyzes the potentials of mycelium-based composites, a biodegradable material derived from fungus, as architectural acoustic components as an alternative conventional, synthetic sound absorbing materials. The research has two main tracks: material to performance and form to performance.
