An Architect Channels Nature

Michael Pawlyn has developed mind expanding architectural projects founded on “regenerative” principles. Principles that go beyond creating sustainability (maintain the current state of the environment) to ones that are regenerative (restore environments to their former state). By closely observing nature he is exploring ways to design and operate buildings that can both reverse environmental damage and a have a net-positive impact on the environment. Check out his TED talk.
