House Made of Meat Serves Up Delicious Surprises

Dr. Mitchell Joachim is putting a whole new spin on the term "grow your own." An architecture and sustainable design professor at New York University, Joachim is also the co-founder of Terreform ONE, a Brooklyn-based nonprofit that connects scientists, architects, artists and students in an effort to come up with a few creative solutions for urban sustainability. True to their mission, Terreform ONE has created one of the world's most bizarrely ambitious green habitat projects: a home created entirely from meat.

Designed to be a truly organic "victimless shelter," the scaled-down prototype unit's building materials are grown from pig cells in a lab, meaning that no trees or animals were hurt in the process, then shaped using the same medical techniques used to treat cancer patients.

Bacon anyone?
