    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Herwig SCHERABON: Ichneumonid is a project about species mutation and insect morphology as an approach to architectural typology. It deals with the deconstruction and subversion of remnants from second world war. The design is based on insectoid aesthetics and entomological analysis of ichneumonidae, a parasitic wasp that affects its host by seeding eggs into the hosts body. The worms, that eclose from the eggs, break through the hosts skin and pupate on it. The architectural equivalent would be a parasitic building that grows from the inside of an existing building.
