Scientists have been trying to develop cheap, alternative building materials for years. But there’s one material that is surprisingly strong, secure, waterproof and perhaps just too creepy to handle: animal blood. Recent architectural graduate Jack Munro realized this abundant, greatly wasted substance, could be used as a building material in underdeveloped countries. However the controversial material is definitely a red flag for environmentalists already concerned about the numerous negative environmental impacts of the beef industry, while vegans and various religious groups will certainly not rest their head under a roof made of blood. Still, Munro argues that this innovative yet icky idea may have the potential to create new jobs and cleaner communities.
