402 Cognizant Ontogeny - We are to create a PIK extension that seeks a growing dynamic accrued by the exchange and synthesis between nature, human evolution and science. To combine scientific culture and concepts from nature, the cause calls for awareness of a unique relationship between the given, the construct and the occupants; a relationship that is founded on a 4 dimensional observation of a set of connections; set of connections between site, energy, inhabitants, and programs.
The construct is an organism. During creation, it roots itself, grows out of elements of the site; making its moment when it intertwines and enclose like rose blossom. Nevertheless, it leaves room to breath, room for occupants to embrace with nature. While operating, it's internal anatomy nourishes the necessary flow of information. Outwardly, it continuously harvests energy from nature. Internally, branches interact with the occupants to create optimal local surroundings for them.
