During the 20th century there was led to a major battle between Russia and the USA in the space conquest. In the 21st century this battle focuses on an entirely different scale - nano. Since the turn of the millennium we can follow an exponential development in biotechnology. These are genetic manipulation and change or creation of new biological forms. Another step to reach the first phase of the Kardashev scale of civilization.
The project NEOPLASM is based on one of the biggest inventions on a field of medicine in 2016 called CRISPER Cas9. This new method enables us to manipulate easily with an existing DNA sequence of every living organism on the Earth. In a genetic code of DNA there is encoded every information about morphology and physiology of the whole living organism, how it grows and how it behaves. When we can modify genomes of DNA or add completely synthetic ones, we are able to design an organism according to our current needs and requirements by changing of DNA in a unicellular embryo that then divides, growths and lives based on a new edited DNA. These types of objects can be brought back into the nature with its full functionality and sustainability.
Editing genomes within a DNA sequence with the method of CRISPER Cas9 is similar to a computer scripting language. We can talk about an open-source architecture when designing of the environment is simply open to everyone. The design process could be explained as building with LEGO bricks as putting together different types of units to create one complex structure. With this tool we got a power to our hands and we are prepared to start sculpting the evolution. What took millennia through natural evolution can be carried out because of genetic engineering tools during a few hours in a lab environment. The goal of the project is not to provide a specific design for specific purpose, but propose the way of thinking about architecture as an environment of flexible, living objects compounding one great sustainable organism.
