When design has to deal with nature, the thing to do is to “shut up and listen!”. You can’t possibly beat nature so just join it – in harmony of course.
Designing with nature is effectively the preservation of the existing natural physical features of the site which includes its ecosystem. Design has to fit in naturally- from the setting of the buildings, architectural language (that should speak with the nature that surrounds it!) and usage of materials. Like in the case of some projects highlighted here, the materials are even ‘contributed’ by the nature that surrounds it – making the design seem as if it is grown out of its surroundings.
