Is it possible to lay the foundation elements for a place without designing? Dividing things up into components and then placing in a space based on their characteristic elements.
Here I will discuss the 3 fundamentals of my approach to design.
Adapt to change by allowing for change. Time is important here – places that change and are not trapped within an epoch. I believe designing for legacy and preservation is now redundant and a new approach is forming. This approach includes reduced ownerships and more focus on what’s healthy. As we become more aware what is ‘good for us’ then we are able to adapt to this.
Produce the tangible and intangible that forms what may or may not exist. Valuing the product of natural processes is key to producing. If we have a healthy natural element such as a flowing stream – we allow for what is know to be good for us but also the endless intangible unknowns. Investing in what’s good for us and not what makes us wealthier.
This is a regenerative use of land that has the potential to bypass the planning system?
Formed through this is the levitating city and soil beneath
Their was an interesting contrast between the similarities of the mega-biodiverse tropical rainforest contrasted against the mega-dense city, the ying and yang of urban development. Something was missing and the designers involved continued with the western sacrosanct design process which involved – foundations. nothing wrong with either
A human-created space that can be rolled up and packed away leaivng no trace upon the soil, or deconstructed down to feed back into the microbiota.
We are still laying the foundations.
the non design and non plan approaches discussed here which minimise the need for planning control and long term strategies. To not design may allow for stuff to happen, that is beyond the control of what we know.
