This is an architectural proposal for
the fabrication of 3D printed extruded
pig cells to form real organic
dwellings. It is intended to be a
"victimless shelter", because no
sentient being was harmed in the
laboratory growth of the skin. We used
sodium benzoate as a preservative to
kill yeasts, bacteria and fungi. Other
materials in the model matrix are;
collagen powder, xanthan gum,
mannitol, cochineal, sodium
pyrophosphate, and recycled PET
plastic scaffold.  As of now, the
concept model consists of essentially
very expensive fitted cured pork or
articulated swine leather with an
extensive shelf life.  The actual scale
of the non-perishable prototype is
11
inx3inx7in.
