Inspiring People To Change Their Minds

By PSU EcoMerge Capstone - 9:03 PM

Architect Vincent Callebaut reminds us how creative people can be when they're passionate about something. His Eco-Utopian Visions are beautiful, and something that reminds us all how important it is to be creative and imaginative in our endevours. Albert Einstein once said, "Knowledge will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere." This rings true of Callebauts vision of a more eco-friendly urban environment because it lends itself more to imagination than logic. Although this image is probably not realistic in my lifetime, it's inspiring and thought provoking nevertheless.

When I think about urban naturalization and how significant it is to people and the environment, being creative and using my imagination isn't the first thing that comes to mind. Urban naturalization is an important issue not to be taken lightly, however sometimes a little inspiration is refreshing and sparks some outside the box thinking that we need to create change. We must deliver our message in a variety of ways, and be creative in our strategy so that people feel compelled to act. You never know what might inspire someone to change they're thinking, so we must explore a wide range of tactics. Below is a link to more inspiring images from the mind of Vincent Callebaut.

Eco-Utopian Visions of Architect Vincent Callebaut

Dragonfly
In the opening of his presentation for this vertical urban farm proposed for
New York City's East River, the artist declares "the world of fast and frozen
food to be over." The building would include floors for agriculture, meat,
milk, poultry, and eggs.
















Perfumed Jungle
Conceived as a response to the destiny of Hong Kong, this project would
"renaturalize" the city by extending the Central Waterfront and populating
it with "techno-organic towers." The buildings would be sheathed in a
fertilized substrate that would enable the growth of luxuriant vegetation.
