Post of the week: Growing Buildings!


Man are we exhausted! We’ve got a whole lot of good content in the pipes, butterfly attracting factories, reviews of the hottest theory, and multiple other zoo projects but there just isn’t enough time in the day to give you the content that you, and more importantly, we deserve. So this will have to do with the promise of more next week.

We came across this post on Treehugger earlier and, well it brings to light so many of the current and pressing issues that surround and imbue building with (as opposed to for or like) living things that we just had to repost it. Don’t get us wrong we think it’s a step in the right direction but falls short of our, we admit perhaps lofty, expectations. Enjoy and see you next week! Leave a comment here and on Treehugger!

Over the years we have encountered several resources for visualizing animal movement and a few of our favorite (and most useful) ones are listed below.
