Building Blogs of a Better World

Reflecting on one of the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) Repositioning themes, “Innovate” inspires ideas on building a better world. It brings to mind a new blog series called “Building as Unusual” by Geekie-Award-winning digital media platform Earth 2 Hub. It involves insights that are influencing the discourse of architecture and the built environment:


“In an era of rapid scientific and technological advancement, the radical ideas of yesteryear are becoming the reality of the present. 3D printing, adaptive architecture, biomimetics, synthetic biology and living technologies are challenging and driving new aesthetics, systems and relationships within the built environment. In her quest to answer the question “how would nature design a city?”, Earth 2 Hub’s Head of Technology Melissa Sterry has met many of the pioneering figures that are exploring the far-reaching potential of new science, new technology and new thinking within both the cities of the present and of the near and far future. In our exclusive new series ‘Building as Unusual’, Earth 2 Hub will introduce you to a handful of these figures and their ideas, so that you too can explore some of the exotic new architectural languages that are evolving - and consider how these may help us to build a better world.” - Earth 2 Hub


I am one of two AIA members who recently contributed in these conversations. Read it today.
