Third millennium questions for a sustainable world: Rachel Armstrong

Dr. Rachel Armstrong is a professor of architecture who has developed concepts for sustainable, habitable structures that can be grown. She was a featured speaker and facilitator at Icarus Interstellar's 2015 Starship Congress. Her bio on the Starship Congress speaker's page reads:

Rachel Armstrong, professor of Experimental Architecture at Newcastle University, innovates and designs sustainable solutions for the built environment using advanced new technologies such as synthetic biology and smart chemistry. Rachel Armstrong’s new science thesis and book, Vibrant Architecture (Matter as CoDesigner of Living Structures), explores prospects for transformations of matter into habitable structures, which prompts a reevaluation of how we think about sustainability in our homes and cities. The open access book can be downloaded free of charge from this site:
