Lucia Landivar’s thesis, “Architecture / Nature – A Hybrid,” presents a revolutionary approach to architectural design, merging natural elements with modern construction methods. This concept is demonstrated through a detailed exploration of sustainable materials and innovative structural solutions that integrate the natural environment into urban settings. Lucia emphasizes the use of bioplastics, bamboo, and mycelium-based concrete to reduce the ecological footprint of buildings while enhancing their aesthetic and functional qualities. Her work challenges traditional architectural paradigms by proposing designs that are both environmentally responsible and adaptable to changing urban landscapes, advocating for a future where architecture and nature coexist harmoniously.
