    Bioprotopia is the vision of a world with buildings that grow, self-heal and create virtuous cycles where waste from one process feeds another. This is the first book to ground the concept of biotechnology in the built environment in large-scale prototypes. It presents processes that exploit the many possibilities of shaping the built environment with micro-organisms. Scientific and technical challenges are discussed, pointing to the need for a shift in thinking and culture to ensure progress.
