Living upon the Nature. Nisshin Kogyo Architectural Design Competition
Очередной конкурс Nisshin Kogyo рассматривает взаимоотношения человека и природы. Организаторы не ограничивают фантазию участников и предлагают свободно интерпретировать тему. Возможно, это будут поиски решения экологических проблем. А может быть, попытка обеспечить визуальную гармонию между архитектурой и ее природным окружением.
We are currently asked about how to define “Nature”.
For instance, “Anthropocene” means a new stratum formed by the activity of mankind which has a significant influence on the global environment, such as massive emissions of carbon dioxide and large-scale reclamation. It has been advocated as a geological time after the Holocene. How should we live on such an unstable Earth which is susceptible to human influence?
Design for Ecological Democracy by Randolph T. Hester (Cambridge, Massachusetts: MIT Press, 2006) lets us think about the relationship between nature and human activity by simultaneously considering ecology and democracy.
We must also think about living with changes in the weather, such as global warming, torrential downpours, and bomb cyclones.
Therefore, we have decided “LIVING upon the NATURE” as this theme. It might be referred to problems around you. Once again, think about what nature is and what life is. We are looking forward to your proposals.
