Meristem Wall

Meristem Wall is a prototype of a fully 3D printed building envelope made using sand binder jetting and complemented with a custom CNC knitted fabric. The wall incorporates a system of transient and controllable airflows modeled on the physiology of termite mounds, allowing it to act as a climate modulator and provide a habitat for urban wildlife.
