About the project
Mycelium Temple of Healing and Reflection. It is a link between humans and nature, a poem to the organic beauty of mushrooms that inspires deep reflection and healing. This unique temple fuses the natural process of mycelium growth with an organic architectural composition, transforming a natural environment into a sacred space. Upon entering one experiences a ritual connection to the earth. The fluid, curved spaces mimic the subway redness of mushrooms, reminding us of our interconnectedness with nature and the importance of returning to our roots. Light filters through organic patterns, creating a magical atmosphere that invites introspective reflection.This temple invites visitors to explore healing experiences, to find peace in simplicity and discover beauty in imperfection. Inspired by the strength and adaptability of mushrooms, Mycelium is a reminder that even in the deepest darkness, we can find light.
