Type of activity
Workshop
Date of the activity


Location of the activity
Tolhuistuin, Amsterdam-Noord
Background
Sunday the 14th of October we spent our day in the garden of Tolhuistuin cooking paper and cardboard, crumbling mushroom mycelium, mixing coffee grounds and stuffing all of this into our brand new Mushroom Trees. Because yes, our newest project the MUSHROOM TREES has officially started! The trees consist of paper, cardboard, or coffee grounds on which we experiment with growing different types of mushrooms. The trees are now exhibited at the Hyperion Lyceum, a new secondary school in Amsterdam Noord. During the coming three weeks students from Hyperion will watch the growth of our mushroom trees and experiment with growing their own mushrooms on different materials. For this project we are working together with de Stuurlui Stedenbouw and Groundcondition, who are known for other projects such as the Mushroom wall for which they won the Appetizing Architecture award.
