"People are always learning from nature and replicating different processes like growing food, cultivating pearls or creating nature-inspired designs. Our Anthropocentric presence is either altering or establishing all systems, and more than ever we are getting disconnected from our origins. The shift between the Anthropocene and Biocentrism, from hard to soft powers, requires introducing flexibility to improve the balance in our world by researching new possibilities for constructing better spaces. The goal is to form environments finding a balance between analogue and computation, natural and artificial leads to the creation of a balanced environment, where we can collaborate with nature and let its intelligence fully unfold."
