THE HIDDEN LIFE OF ARCHITECTURE


HOPE AGAINST HOPE

In a recent decade, global society agrees to bring the world to be a better place. The momentous decision came as an auspicious beginning. It came as a joy of the promising world for not only human but also other living creatures and nature. Still, until now, the way in which the world propose to create sustainable development has not yet truly sustain others. It is the way in which we are considering human beings as the center of everything. Nature is still dismally crippled and “Sustainability for all" is merely political rhetoric.LIVING ORGANISM

We know that sustainability in architecture nowadays is to reduce waste, produce more clean energy, and so on, which seems impressive, yet mainly for the human. What if, however, an architecture can sustain not only itself but also other lives? What if, an architecture can grow, reproduce and metabolize by itself. What if, we are perceive an architecture not only as a building but also as a living organism?


THE HIDDEN LIFE OF ARCHITECTURE

We know that architecture, in general, is artificial and inactive. When we live in a building it seems to be static and just a structure of something. But, imagine of the marvelous world that architecture could talk with each other through their embedded roots and signals. Imagine that buildings could have a friendship, have communities and protect both their own tribes and others-- animals, human, and trees. Imagine an architecture that can pass knowledge through there genes and evolve them through the genetic algorithm that can adapt itself and its community within any context. In a sense, the architecture is not having only a concrete structure but, among them, also the hidden lifeThere will be the day when both architecture and living creatures could formulate a biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment. This will be the day when the human race will be able to live with the new meaning of “Sustainability Ecosystem”.
