Architecture firm Een Til Een has just opened the first "biological house" in Denmark. What exactly does this mean? This house was built almost entirely from upcycled materials that are generally considered waste produced by the agricultural industry—things like grass, straw, and seaweed. Interestingly, these materials would normally be burned for energy.

World Architecture reports that these materials were instead specially compressed into raw materials to construct the house. Kim Christofte, CEO of Een til Een, stated that experimenting with finding the correct balance of materials was an intense but worthwhile process.
