YUGTO’19 – TRANSITION
CHANGE IS INEVITABLE. GROWTH IS OPTIONAL
Transition is a certainty – the inevitable effect of birth. The appearance of new matter using the characteristic features of a place in order to emphasize its relation with the past. Transition and culture continuity is the triumph card in shaping their function.
The architecture of change is a conceptual shift which lasts for a short period in today’s culture and life is an age which is flooded with styles, trends and other forces of change. A new means to help sustain our adaptability in the built world is rapidly emerging and can be termed transition.
For millennia men proved that they could live in a sustainable way. They lived in harmony with nature. They made use of it yet respected it. People used earth as a raw material with sensitivity. The modern fashion of the 20th century created a break. The link between man and nature has been lost over years.
Throughout the history of mankind humans have been manipulating natural resources to produce various materials they needed to sustain growing human populations.
“Give and take are two sides of the coin called life” -Lihaaz
In the struggle for survival and development, mankind creates a lot of negative impacts on the environment ,these impacts ranges from over-exploitation of resources , destruction of ecosystem as well as pollution. Typically the exploitation of nature has been executed in a non-sustainable way, which is causing an increasing concern, as the non-sustainable exploitation of natural resources ultimately threatens the existence of human being itself.
An architects responsibility is to use the available resources in a way that meets their needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
The future is largely unknown. So, it is crucial to stop the depletion of the natural capitals of the earth by creating innovative solutions that achieve the objectives of present and future generations. As the entity that designs buildings and specifies materials, architects have to accept their leadership and social responsibilities in this regard.
The aim of protecting the mother earth from getting over-exploited and meeting generations needs can be accomplished by causing change and sticking with the eco-friendly construction.
