When planning for the future of a building we forget about the world beyond its walls. We home in on the structure – its foundations & floors, cavities & cracks – isolating it from its surroundings. The smartest designs are an active part of local ecosystems: they harness heat from the sun, facilitate the flow of fresh air, or take advantage of trees and hillsides for shelter. And they give back, too: habitats for wildlife, drainage for stormwater, greenery to keep a dense city block cool.
