IN VITRO MEAT HABITAT

This is an architectural proposal for the fabrication of 3D printed extruded pig cells to form real organic dwellings. It is intended to be a "victimless shelter", because no sentient being was harmed in the laboratory growth of the skin. We used sodium benzoate as a preservative to kill yeasts, bacteria and fungi. Other materials in the model matrix are; collagen powder, xanthan gum, mannitol, cochineal, sodium pyrophosphate, and recycled PET plastic scaffold.  As of now, the concept model consists of essentially very expensive fitted cured pork or articulated swine leather with an extensive shelf life.  The actual scale of the non-perishable prototype is 11in x 3in x7in.
