Seen Unseen: The Biological and Social Networks of Cities – Part 1, Feb 2015

Seen Unseen: The Biological and Social Networks of Cities – Part 1, Feb 2015 | Bionic City | Scoop.it
Bionic City's insight:

Design scientist Melissa Sterry writes on biological and social networks in cities for Human Spaces.

 

Extract

"Ancient though its origins are, the Tree of Life and its potent symbolism remain as relevant today, if not more so, than when it was very first conceived. A universal motif, adopted both by religion and science, across millennia, it illustrates that since time immemorial humanity has perceived the connectivity of all things, both seen and unseen.

 

The Tree of Life is by far the most simple, yet the most effective, therein successful metaphor ever created. Fundamental to its every incarnation is the notion of complex adaptive systems: of cause and effect at scale. Commonly employed to illustrate the connectivity of all living things, be that by Charles Darwin, or by the authors of innumerable ancient mythological and religious texts, the Tree of Life is a tool that helps us to understand our place in the world, both in the present, and the eternal".

Oxford Climate Forum, Nov 2014

Oxford Climate Forum, Nov 2014 | Bionic City | Scoop.it
Bionic City's insight:

On Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd November 2014, University of Oxford will host its fifth annual Climate Forum (OCF). The leading student-run conference of its kind, OCF brings top environmental figures and thinkers together with over 300 students from Oxford and across the world. Its mission is to provide inspiration and knowledge for tomorrow’s leaders, creating opportunities for young people to tackle the challenges of climate change. 

 

The theme of this year’s conference is Individual, Community, World: ACTION. From individual decisions to community organization to international policies, every action has an impact in shaping our future. OCF will act as a focal point to bring academia and business together in order to understand, empower, and organise the change that is required to meet the most significant challenge of the 21st century. It will consider a wide spectrum of areas—such as research, business, and policy—from the perspectives of both developed and developing countries.

 

The conference will include lectures, panel discussions, debates, and workshops, all of which will inform and challenge participants. Most importantly, this conference will inspire attendees to take greater action within the climate change arena on all levels, from individual behaviour change to international collaboration.

 

Confirmed speakers include design scientist and futurist Melissa Sterry, who will deliver a keynote on the role of cities in mitigating the impacts of climate change and its secondary impacts, with a focus on bio-designed architecture and infrastructure.

Image: Tree Shrine in Ahmadabad. © Copyright Melissa Sterry

Bionic City's insight:

Part II of design scientist Melissa Sterry's article on biological and social networks in cities for Human Spaces.

 

Extract

"Ahmadabad boasts several notable depictions of the Tree of Life, including the world-famous stone carving at the Sidi Saiyyed Mosque. However, the image we found to be the most poignant in reference to our project depicts the tree as a mirror image, in which the size and the shape of that below – the root system – reflects that which is above – the trunk and the branches. The visual narrative was a clear reference to one of the most fundamental concepts within both religion and science; that of opposing, yet complimentary forces – life vs. death, light vs. dark, material vs. immaterial, and so on. Take away a tree’s root system and, having toppled over first, it will slowly die, as it becomes starved of the nutrients essential to its existence (a matter those touting ‘urban forests’ comprised trees on balconies and roof tops might like to contemplate for while)."
