True Sustainability...

“A bird builds a nest and we call it nature, but when we build a house we see it as something artificial. Almost against nature. Maybe there’s some way we can get closer to what it is the bird is doing.”

-Dennis Dollens, Biomimetic Architecture Theorist, who spoke brilliantly on the sandy shores of M&A last night. If it's TRUE sustainability you're looking for, then this is your man.

("The Big Duck" Flanders, Long Island, NY - the most literal form of biomimetic architecture.)
