"The relationship between the natural and the artificial has been a recurring discussion throughout the history, particularly in architecture. Being one of the most complicated, certainly most time-consuming project mankind has to undertake, architecture has always been seen as a mark against the nature, a realized version of human ambition. However, despite architecture being the evident of human society’s growing dominance over nature, a fundamental duality is inherited in architecture, as the natural has never been absent within its artificial appearance. This thesis is an attempt to re-evaluate architecture in the context of 21st century ecology, with a backdrop of global warming and resources shortage. The ambition is seeking new possibilities for architecture with a retroactive discovery into the historical linage, examining the inception in which the dual relationship between the artificial and the natural is staged."
