Complex design

From William McDonough’s Cradle to Cradle TED talk:

Imagine this design assignment:

Design something that…

  • makes oxygen
  • sequesters carbon
  • fixes nitrogen
  • distills water
  • accrues solar energy as fuel
  • makes complex sugars and food
  • creates microclimates
  • changes colors with the season
  • self-replicates

Why don’t we knock that down and write on it…
