Paul and Beau discuss research on utilizing mycelium, the root-like part of a fungus, as a building material. Beau explores the potential for mycelium to be grown in any shape or size, including for surface-mounted acoustical treatment or even for constructing entire buildings. He highlights the insulating and flame-retarding attributes of the mycelium and the excitement around this innovative approach.
