Homo Digitalis-Informaticus is the product of our days. The wireless terminal stands as the gate of his universe. It keeps him away from a tangible reality in which he no longer believes. Prone to chronic defeatism, he is characterized in two ways: the one who fears time and the one who wants to catch it up. It seems like he is not even aware of his own existence.

In order to counter this phenomenon, our research laboratory focused on issues related to the importance of a return to tangible values as well as a re-positioning of humans within their environment. The architecture we propose puts Humans in a system where they no longer occupy the center of attention. They evolve in harmony with their environment. They do not seek to isolate themselves from natural phenomena but instead build an interactional relationship with nature. Through a process of experimentation, we make the first organs intended to fulfill the inventory of the living architecture, autonomous architecture that communicates with the natural phenomena and imposes a new dialogue between the occupier and its environment.
