Our way of life is killing us. Whether by tradition or habit, the human race does some things that hurt us all in the long term. Our cities, buildings and surroundings have been designed around abundant and cheap oil, but now we have painted ourselves into a corner and are stuck there. Eric Corey Freed, architect and principal of organicARCHITECT, explores lessons learned from history, biomimicry, crowdfunding and collaborative consumption that can provide bold insights into new ways to design living, regenerative buildings for everyone in a matter of decades while undoing the damage of the past.
