Can a responsive design approach, that respects and learns from nature, become a set of rules with which we can develop an architecture of the future?
by Lucy Smith
What is society’s current relationship with nature and how have our design approaches considered it in the past? How and why has our relationship to nature changed? What can be done now to repair and redefine our relationship with nature? Can we create a paradigmatic shift from our existing design approaches, to more informed sustainable methodology, within our architectural practices? Is Biomimicry the foundation with which to sustain a responsive architectural approach of the future?
I have recently completed my thesis year at the University of Portsmouth having achieved a Diploma of Architecture.
