Can we GROW building? Or can the buildings GROW by themselves? Maybe yes. If we observe the natural objects and natural processes in detail, we find that how beautifully such complex entities are working together to create numerous similar entities. This is an academic exercise to understand these systems and find out whether it is possible for habitable architecture to EMERGE by itself. With the new tools like biotechnology and nanotechnology, we can, in theory, assign parameters to the molecules of the building materials so that they can grow and replicate themselves accoriding to the given design - just like plants, animals and other natural structures do based on their genetic code.... Possibilities are unlimited!
