With studying architecture for the last five years, and having a moral conscious in the back of my mind of wanting to “save the world” and perhaps
understanding the reason to life, I would like to pursue a career which provokes these ideas in my chosen field.
In this day and age we live in, I find that architecture is beginning a new movement which can be categorised under topics such as speculative
architecture, advanced architecture (computational), bio-architecture (creating, supporting and enhancing life and living systems). However, the down
side to this movement is that it is still very new, and no the economy does not provoke this kind of field. There are small studio’s, and a few
larger blogging sites such as Inhabitat, that really motivate me to follow this path because I find that it is important for our race to evolve in
this field for survival instincts. This kind of architecture would provoke the idea of designing architecture by looking closer to nature, such as
swarm intelligence for example, and using the properties of swarm intelligence to perhaps predict climatic events that would propose threat to
society. Or by looking at how plants structures grow, to then understand how structural supports can adapt for buildings to provoke sustainability.
These are two of many examples.
I guess I came here to seek answers to find out if anyone is perusing the same line of interest? Or if anyone has read any articles or heard of any
architectural studio’s which have explored this area.
Also does anyone have opinions on how architecture might be a solution for solving the great mysteries of the world or to one day maybe save humanity.
(Not being rude, but please no pyramid discussions unless relevant)
