Incorporating Nature

All architecture exists in its environment.  Frequently there are natural elements to enhance architecture.  I deeply appreciate the ways in which nature may provide context and detail for architecture.  After all, nature has been practicing architecture for a long time.

Buildings in Nature: Bethlehem, NH

Natural Details Inside and Out: Miami, FL

  2. Your insights are wonderful, Walter! I so much enjoy "reading you" on various media! Thanks!! All my best, Ellen
