Technology is a biological process; a prosthetic extension of the human condition. We see the built environment as a living organism, dynamic and evolving in symbiosis with our own evolution. The environments and objects that we construct are inseparable from our biological selves in that they buffer, amplify and filter our interactions with the world around us.
Etymology of BIOS
* Bios is the Latin word for life.
* Bios is the primary driver for the hardware of the contemporary computer.
* Bios is a living practice of collaborative architecture, adapting to our dynamic world.
Living organisms are distinguished from inanimate objects in that they exhibit metabolism, reproduction, and response to stimuli. Living organisms communicate: depending on feedback to find optimal patterns for their continued existence. They self-organize, living in negative entropy. As designers we find the patterns of life and use them to negotiate the layering of diverse parameters and constraints inherent in architectural design.
