Form Follows Organism



‘Form Follows Organism: The biological computer’ is a book about biodesign and the shifting role of the (product) designer. ‘Form Follows Organism’ is about the application of design knowledge to consumer products and design methodologies. The research questions investigated are: ‘how can we control the process of growing materials or products?’ and: ‘how can we design new tools and algorithms that unlock the power of living cells?’
