Ego to Eco is an installation that seeks to explore how to design human communities based on the principles of nature. To change the path of our civilization, one needs to acknowledge that human evolution is social—driven by collective desires and aspirations. Design can give shape to these aspirations and propose new ways of living that seriously consider the needs of both people and the planet. By applying natural principles in design, humans can strive to close the gap that currently exists between the built and natural environments, for the mutual benefit of both human and nonhuman life.

By designing buildings and cities as ecosystems, we can begin to bridge the gap between the built and natural environment for the mutual benefit of both human and non-human life.
