ArtsTech Philly and YAF Present Architect Eric Cory Freed: Attack of the Dodo Sapiens
ArtsTech Philly, in collaboration with Young Architects Forum, presents “Attack of the Dodo Sapiens: Innovative New Models for Sustainable Development”, a talk by Eric Cory Freed about biomimicry and its applications to sustainable architecture.
“Our way of life is killing us. Our cities, buildings and surroundings have been designed around abundant and cheap oil, but now we have painted ourselves into a corner and are stuck there. The next generation of buildings will have to do better than just energy efficiency and recycled materials. Our lack of foresight has made our building toxic, wasteful and unaffordable. In order to undo the damage of the past, we need innovative, new models for how to build deep green, bio-based buildings. By examining the emotional, psychological and financial reasons why we build we find new and better arguments for greening buildings. With this talk we will learn how to use biomimicry and organic principles as a guide, teaching us how to transform our built environments through bio inspired design and design solutions modeled on designs found in nature.” – excerpt from Freed.
