We need to evolve into a different way of thinking, building and living. Design is the key for success, success in terms of minimizing waste, human labor, and energy input by building systems with maximal benefits between design elements, achieving thus, a high level of synergy. The modeling comes from observing natural ecosystems “in situ”. Developing from there, the ecological design and the environmental engineering. Design that enhance sustainable architecture and self-maintained agroforestry systems . Design emphasizes patterns of landscape, function, and species assemblies.
The central concept is maximizing useful connections between components and synergy of the final design. The whole becoming greater that the sum of the parts.
