Building With EfficiencyUnknown - 2014
The production of home construction materials like concrete uses a very high amount of raw materials. What can we deduce from the adaptability of animals and plants that would help us create a more sustainable world today? The second episode in this four part series deals with the real estate of nature: plants and sponges. Just as human dwellings they are bound to locations and forced to find the best survival strategy on their "land." Over millions of years there has emerged a kind of natural archive of strategies and solutions in constant improvement-and we can utilize this archive if we can learn to understand it.
