This session will ask two questions “Are we obligated to constrain our encroachment upon the environment in order to preserve biotic integrity?” And “When it is deemed necessary, or at least permissible, to develop should our design techniques reflect the current environment it is effecting?” As the facilitator of this discussion my working thesis is that it is only natural for humans to utilize the land, but that we are morally, and pragmatically, bound to preserve the integrity of the land. In order to accomplish such preservation, we must use sustainable building practices and designs that do not drastically change the original environment.
