How can architects build a new world of sustainable beauty? By learning from nature. If we could learn to make or do things the way nature does we could affect to 10, 100 or maybe even 1000 savings in resources and energy use!
Michael Pawlyn established Exploration in 2007 to focus exclusively on environmentally sustainable projects that take their inspiration from nature. In 2008 Exploration was short-listed for the Young Architect of the Year Award and the internationally renowned Buckminster Fuller Challenge.
Michael Pawlyn describes three habits of nature that could transform architecture and society:
– Radical resource efficiency,
– Closed loops,
– Drawing energy from the sun.
