Ecology. Design. Syntheses

Today I went through the reading Professor Sherman mentioned in class: Ecology, Design, Syntheses. I liked how the reading clearly laid out the different biophysical facts and elements, followed by a detailed example. The reading covers temperature, air, light, material and human scale. I found the examples given in the reading particularly interesting.

The Senscity uses a giant flower structure to modulate the temperature in the desert of Las Vegas

The Genzyme Corporate Headquaters uses light chandelier to catch more daylight and create interest variation of different light effects.
