the city is a living, breathing organism...constantly changing and reacting. similarly, this site and its content continues to be under construction, constantly evolving...much like the city. UrbanOrganism seeks to encourage an advanced inhabitation of the cities we have built by placing emphasis on designing sustainable urban places for people.
The city is a living, breathing organism. It will grow and adapt, mediate and react. Architecture therefore lies at the intersection of organization and chaos. A physical construct must recognize both its dependence and affect on each and every other urban edifice. Human existence, whether rural or populated, is urban. Our responsibility as designers and visionaries is to nourish the system whereby people activate the urban and the urban in turn feeds the populace. The city mediates and welcomes our life experiences. We are the city. We are all a part of the UrbanOrganism.
people = [house-->community-->village-->town-->city] = urban
