Nature seems to always be one step ahead of us, having a mind of its own that usually differs from our own desires. It grows upon buildings, cuts its way through sidewalks, it consumes architecture, but we simply cannot eliminate it entirely from our design. Since we have to get along with nature, it stands to reason that by understanding how nature will impact architecture in the future, we can begin to adapt to those gestures.

Whereas traditional architecture goes against the grain of nature, attempting to control it with perfect landscaping, GeoBasin by Paul Chan proposes a system where nature and built structure function in harmony. This project depicts the evolution of a structure through a 100-year life cycle, as the buildings systematically disintegrate and regenerate into efficient landmasses with the help of nature. Vegetation embedded within the building structure would operate as a slow-momentum destructive agent. It is estimated that the biodegradable porous filtration membranes within the building will retain pragmatic function for about 50-60 years and then slowly dissipate as the plants and wildlife around the site liberate the structure.”]

This concept not only studies the influences of nature on architecture over time, but also proposes a solution for the constant need for landfills. According to the research by Paul Chan, current landfills simply assume that the land will stay stagnant and unaffected by the high-level of pollution. The GeoBasin however creates land through a precisely calculated ecological design system that works collaboratively with nature. At the end of the buildings life cycle, not only is it self-destructive, where the structural elements can still be reused, but the regenerative architectural intervention ultimately creates pockets of islands and thus restores nature.
