Embedded Architectures: Challenging the Architecture – Nature Divide
Humankind is actively shaping the world today. The geological impact of human activity is so pronounced it has changed the behaviour of our planet. This is the epoch of the Anthropocene. Though the Anthropocene may appear to mark the moment humans have come to overpower nature, it is also an opportunity to rethink the most basic relationship between our buildings and ecology. Architecture should be considered a tool for redefining the complete cycle of building, from its most basic components to its operating systems.
