In anticipation of a future world that’s lacking in many of the familiar organic species of today and greatly altered due to the destructive impact that human industries have on the planet, EcoNET by Masha Pekurovsky poses questions about the way we may need to start building. As the subject of a thesis project for a Master of Architecture, this ‘Project_4’ demonstrates the possible integration of living materials with artificial ones.

The creator aimed to explore the ways that architecture could become “a platform, a monitor, a remediator, an interface, a harvester, a partner and so on.” Occupiable structures could become practical for human use but beneficial to the environment as well. EcoNET by Masha Pekurovsky suggests that buildings could give back to the earth and keep constant surveillance on its health to strike a harmony between between what’s synthetic and natural.
