Master of Architecture (MArch)
How can we use nature’s way of building and designing and apply this knowledge in a progressive, and innovative way? Can scouring the biosystem be an effective way of finding inspiration?
Art, in the broader sense, is anything produced by humans rather than nature. Through nature, the ultimate source of knowledge and wisdom, is where we eventually draw inspiration from. By manifesting the environment, humans are able to respect and look into nature in a new light. Interaction with nature helps better understand and value the natural themes. The relationship between design and the built environment opens up the politics of space and place.
The challenge remains, to bring nature to civilization on a scale that correlates to the growing urbanization. Honoring nature while letting it flourish with the same momentum, by looking to science and art we find new and grounded tactics. This thesis considers bio-mimesis as a methodology to create a material to become a part of nature and live in harmony with the world again.
