2. ARCHITECTURE FOLLOWS NATURE by Ilaria Mazzoleni

The skin is the bigger sensesory system in most animals including us, it provides communication, thermal regulation, water balance and many othe fuctions. All the examples explored by Illaria and Shauna show a deep insight between biology and architecture giving answers to improve our built environment. Maybe in the near future the skins of the buildings will be capable to respond to weather conditions like polar bears, transform as reptiles do, or collect water like the Onymacris unguicularis (Namib desert beetle). Link | La piel es el sistema sensorial más grande en la mayoría de los animales, incluidos nosotros, proporcionando comunicación, regulación térmica, hidratación, entre muchas otras funciones . Todos los ejemplos explorados por Illaria y Shauna muestran una visión profunda entre la biología y la arquitectura dando respuestas para mejorar nuestro entorno construido. Tal vez en un futuro próximo las pieles de los edificios será capaces de responder a las condiciones climáticas como los osos polares, transformarce como los reptiles, o recolectar agua como el Onymacris unguicularis (escarabajo desierto de Namibia)Link
