Description

This session will introduce participants to the more relevant and yet mysterious elements of architecture and the architecture of life; specifically Sacred Geometry, Biomimicry and Ecomimicry. I will then introduce some lesser known architects, designers, and researchers who use these concepts and structures in their own work in order to make some predictions about the future of design in relation to sustainability.

This course features an 8-part lecture series that discusses the issues surrounding the subjects involved, namely:

  • Introduction
  • Sacred Geometry, Atomic Particles, Vibrations
  • Geometry and Architecture
  • Theoretical Physics, Tensigrity, and Architecture
  • Golden Ratio, Pie, and the Fibonacci Sequence
  • Biomimicry and Sustainability
  • Biomimicry Design Special
  • Nature and Design

Your questions, suggestions, and comments are all welcome. Feel free to send us an email. Happy learning!

Who is the target audience?
  • Individuals who have a passion for landscape design and nature.
  • Professionals who want to know more about the latest trends in design.

Erica Hansen is an artist and ecologist, currently working in Southern Italy. The previous two were spent as an artist-in-residence at The Creative Alliance in Baltimore, MD. She completed her BFA at the Maine College of Art in 2000, with a double major in painting and sculpture. In 2008, she completed her MA in Arts and Education at the Maryland Institute College of Art. She is currently pursuing a practice based PhD through the Socially and Ecologically Engaged Practice.

She describes her approach to art making as an investigation of shared human experience through immediate subject matter and materials. Erica describes herself as a spectator, a scientist, and a sieve. Her work is a conversation between herself, her audience, and the world as a usable substance.

Erica has worked as a holistic educator and arts program coordinator for 15 years. She specializes in cross-discipline collaboration and 21st century art-making practices. Currently, she has focused on wilderness art education and ornithological studies as they apply to at-risk student populations.

Her current body of work examines visible, invisible and psychological structures of human culture in relation to bird culture. Working primarily in photo, video and sculpture she creates visual experiments that exist in between physical space, mythological history, and personal desire.

"Art objects are temporal marks on the landscape, indicative of our impact, but also our minuteness in the history of the earth."
