Project Description

bioMASON is a unique biotechnology start-up manufacturing company with a natural process that will revolutionize the building and construction industry.

bioMASON employs natural microorganisms and chemical processes to manufacture biological cement-based masonry building materials.

The formal inception of bioMASON began as response to an overwhelming positive reaction after winning an international design award: Next Generation “The Big Fix” by Metropolis magazine. Submission for the award was a proposal for a brick that was “grown” in contrast to being “fired”. The idea to grow bricks emerged from a study of coral structure: a very hard cementitious material created by nature in ambient sea temperatures with low energy and material inputs. The process has since been refined and continually optimized for increased performance and reduced production costs.

Over the past nine years, Ginger Dosier has devoted concentration in novel research for new material development for the AEC [Architecture Engineering and Construction] sector with environmental focus. Formally trained as an architect, she has additional experience and training in material science and microbiologically based materials. Prior to founding bioMASON, she served as a teaching fellow of Architecture at NCSU and as an assistant professor of Architecture at the American University in the UAE.
