DIRK HEBEL: Constructing alternatives
The 21st century needs to face a radical paradigm shift in how we produce materials for the construction of our habitat. While the period of the first industrial revolution, in the 18th and 19th century, has resulted in a conversion from regenerative (agrarian) to non-regenerative material sources (mines), our time might experience the reverse: a shift towards cultivating, breeding, raising, farming, or growing future re-sources going hand in hand with a reorientation of biological production methods and goals.
