Living Architecture What will the city of the future look like? More like an ever-changing and vibrant garden than a static set of buildings and blocks. In 'Living Architecture: How Synthetic Biology Can Remake Our Cities and Reshape Our Lives,' British scientist and architect Rachel Armstrong re-imagines the world’s extensive urban areas and argues that in order to achieve sustainable development of the built environment — and help countries like Japan recover from natural disasters — we need to start thinking differently. Armstrong sets the scene for considering different ways of making structures and materials, suggesting that we can ‘grow’ more ecologically compatible buildings by using life-like technologies, such as protocells. The result is a new kind of architectural practice where cities behave more like an evolving ecosystem than lifeless machines., living architecture, living architecture monitor, living architecture magazine, living architecture book, living architecture systems group, living architecture performance tool, living architecture academy, living architecture lab, living architecture series, living architecture green roofs and walls
