Organic Architecture

Where we are

Buildings inspired by nature can help address social and environmental issues and improve people’s wellbeing. Organic architecture promotes harmony through multi-functional spaces composed of natural forms. Structures often host living ecosystems like edible facades, public gardens and moss walls to absorb air pollution and utilize biomimetic assets like natural temperature regulation.

Where we’re going

As innovative designs are realized for living, breathing and growing buildings, urban landscapes will transform from containing green specs to green swathes of buildings and public amenities that complement our increasingly health-focused lifestyles.

How to think about it

Some buildings exist as spectacle while others solve real problems. Consider the merits of both. Pursue spectacle as a means to inspire others, or think about how material, design and function can solve actual social inequalities and empower the communities that use such spaces.
