Inventor, biodesigner and architect Bob Hendrikx strives to restore the parasitic relationship with humanity and its environment by expanding the horizon of human imagination and exploring living materials.

His works includes growing world's first living home at the Dutch Design Week, buying a Detroit home for $1000 to realize autonomous housing, giving nature a voice in the polluted Maldives and setting up a home subscription for fresh air, water, and light. His latest project (Loop) researches the potential to turn humans into compost. His vision is to inspire and empower people towards a sustainable future. Bob has been featured on (inter)national media platforms such as TEDx, Dezeen, BBC, The Guardian, Futurism, Fox News, NOS and NRC.
