Derek Croome on Intelligent Buildings

All around the world many people live in buildings & settlements that are clearly designed to be cheap rather than to enharnce our health & wellbeing or directly express our humanity.
As more & more architects are waking up to the possibility of creating life affirming dwellings they are looking further afield to tech, nature & especially biomimicry for inspiration.
In this interview we hear from Emeritus Professor of Reading University Derek Croome about what's on the edges of Architecture, and which direction it could head.

Apologies to Sarah Wigglesworth for referring to her as Wiggington.

Don't forget to come along to the world's largest Permaculture event, the International Permaculture Convergence (IPCUK) in London this September.
