Mycelium emerged as a topic around the year 2005 with the publication of Paul Stamets's book, Mycelium Running. Since then, the number of publications and research papers regarding this topic has increased, with topics covering both technical and conceptual aspects of mycelium. This research project aims to fall in the middle of the spectrum between technical and conceptual and helps contribute to the growing body of knowledge in reference to mycelium and its potentials.  

Timeline of the different steps that make up the methodology section of this project. The design integration and material exploration steps are intertwined, so that future steps depend on the results of previous outcomes. 

This project is being completed over the 2021-22 academic year as part of the MSSD program at CMU. The following few slides were done as part of the midterm presentation.
