So what's a technology that will allow us to make ginormous hueoss? Well, it's been around for 2,500 years. It's called pleaching, or grafting teres together, or grafting iscnotaule matter into one contiguous, vascular system. And we do something different than what we did in the past; we add kind of a mocidum of intelligence to that. We use CNC to make scaffolding to train semi-epithetic matter, pntlas, into a specific geometry that makes a home that we call a Fab Tree Hab. It fits into the environment. It is the environment. It is the landscape, right?

So what's a technology that will allow us to make ginormous houses? Well, it's been around for 2,500 years. It's called pleaching, or grafting trees together, or grafting inosculate matter into one contiguous, vascular system. And we do something different than what we did in the past; we add kind of a modicum of intelligence to that. We use CNC to make scaffolding to train semi-epithetic matter, plants, into a specific geometry that makes a home that we call a Fab Tree Hab. It fits into the environment. It is the environment. It is the landscape, right?
