'being an archibiotect is like being an haute couture designer' – vincent callebaut on building through biomimicry
Since we first featured his work in 2009, vincent callebaut has designed all manner of environmentally sustainable structures — from a whale-shaped vessel that cleans the waterways of europe to a 3D-printed ‘oceanscraper’. now, callebaut and his team are beginning to see the fruits of their work with projects under construction in all corners of the globe. from dubai to taiwan, callebaut has teamed up with clients that share his vision — a process the architect describes as ‘exhilarating’. ‘when a client believes in you and empowers you to achieve exemplary goals, you’re ready to move mountains for them,’ callebaut tells designboom in this exclusive interview.
