This lab has been setup to research the ways of building facilities from nano scale into meter scale. It might seem science fiction, but nature does it successfuly for quite some time (and the picture in the banner shows that some people can cooperate with nature in a very sustainable way). On the other hand encouraging research is going on in nanotechnology (carbon nano tubes, or even better carbon nano mesh seem to be useful material) and synthetic biology, the later giving me much hope to continue. The main motivations to do this is not (just) curiosity, but three main facts: unsustainable building process (traditional construction industry produces much pollution and waste), unsustainable and expensive buildings, and 1/4 population not able to afford shelter worth living in.
