Join this family-friendly tour and learn more about Mae-ling Lokko’s new commission Hack the Root.

Hack the Root is a newly commissioned installation by Mae-ling Lokko, consisting of an architectural structure grown from agrowaste-fed mycelium (mushroom) panels and an accompanying exhibition at RIBA North. Drawing on historical and contemporary material practices, Hack the Root’s life cycle proposes an alternative to the notion of the root – a system that displaces all around it, consuming its surrounding resources to grow and expand. Through a series of Grow-It-Yourself workshops, modular biomaterial building panels made from a fungus developed by Ecovative have been grown in large-scale grow chambers in the gallery and installed in the exhibition’s entrance tunnel.
