Now We See Now

Buildings are living organisms. They breathe and pulse. They inhabit complex ecosystems of species, technologies, and culture. And understanding buildings requires understanding these vital signs and these ecosystems. The Living is a design studio and an experiment in living architecture. This lecture will describe our approach and our recent work at the intersection of biology, computation, and the circular economy.
