Nano (∋)

Humankind has developed a new form of construction. A synthetically programmed nano-seed is planted into the soil wich sprouts into an organism that feeds upon the minerals in the soil and rock. Although the seed are exact copies of each other, the conditions vary with every location thus creating a new structure each time. Architecture as it is known in the present day lends itself to mass production of parts and materials, each with there own functions and construction methods. Sui Generis leaves this homogeneous design process behind and gradually varies its functionality by adapting to their hosts until it becomes a hybrid. This process allows the building of habitable structures on the Earth and on other planets in a dramatically cheap and ergonomic way.
