TOPIC C · Building 442-444

Humankind biggest power has always been the control over its habitat. The ability to shape the environment to our advantage is limited exclusively by our one-sided dependence on it. Being products of nature, we cannot override the laws that govern it.

Our society has always gone to great lengths to ensure that our energy needs are met. This objective has pushed the environmental concerns down the list of priorities. The harmful effects on the environment that these actions have produced are what we must address today in order to have a tomorrow.

This project stems from the desire and need for a synergistic interdependence between nature and us.
