The Culture of Nature
The Culture of Nature
A contribution to the Debate of Life Resources

The distinction between nature and culture is a central thought figure of Western modernity. Since early modern times, this opposition has shaped thinking about science, economics, politics, gender, and various other areas.
However, a comparison with historical and non-European societies shows that this is not the only way in which humans, non-humans, and environments exist together. Where they come together as communities, this arises from the specific interactions of specific humans and non-humans. These relationships, one could argue, are subject to a principle of recognition.
What if architecture consisted of oppositions, had a dual origin, and had both human and non-human origins? What if an environment that served as the epitome of naturalness was actually a cultural, architectural artifact, and thus would actually improve the life systems around us?
