When we think about green homes and sustainable building, there is a tendency to lean towards new technologies and the tiny house. These solutions however do not get to the crux of the climate crisis which I understand as the crisis of the self. The construction of the home is a representation of how we humans understand our landscapes and draw the borders between the domestic and the wild, nature and artifice. Just as these images show the relation between the human body and its nesting within the tree body, there needs to be a expansion of who we build architecture for and the individuals we consider in the design of our houses and ultimately our larger home -- Earth.
