  • Theo Summer, I took part in a 10 day walking meditation retreat in the south of France.

  • For 10 days, we walked in nature in silence, using the sun as the only source of light and rivers and legs.

  • A showers.

  • One afternoon, as I walked into the woods to answer Nature's call, I found myself walking over very fresh land that clearly was not stepped over by a human for a very long time.

  • Doing so, a thought crossed my mind.

  • Do I have a right to be here and walk over this untouched land full of living organisms?

  • And then another saw?

  • What if I was a cow, then my walking here would be accepted by me as completely natural.

  • Can I walk in a field just like a cow, which I automatically consider being part of nature?

  • What would it mean to dwell on Earth in that way?

  • What would it mean to design from this mindset?

  • These types of questions have been guiding me through my work and through an exploration towards sustainability design that comes from a deep sense of participation.

  • My explorations led me to the bridge methodology, a sustainable design methodology which I developed.

  • Inspired from indigenous knowledge and indigenous living patterns, it is comprised of five design strategies offering a holistic yet applicable view to sustainability design.

  • It features strategies such as dance to the chief, create mediators and discover abundance.

  • Working with these strategies has proved to be a rich platform for developing new possibilities for design to support sustainability.

  • Some very brief examples when Delight is a collection off self sufficient outdoor lights operated by wind energy.

  • It is created from a repetitive module integrating wind collection and an led light source into one element.

  • Wendy Light dances with the wind, illustrating a sustainability design vision in which products become a direct link between natural resource is and everyday human needs.

  • Water fel is a private upper well, enabling the home user to collect do and rainwater for everyday needs.

  • Waterfall is a multi season water collector as well as a shading element.

  • It illustrates a lifestyle in which products become nourishing interfaces, enabling everyone of us tohave harvest accessible natural abundance.

  • Slow water is a platform for collecting and reusing water at home.

  • It can be very easily integrated in the home environment and in every existing bathroom, so water touches the potential of design to become a mediating platform, enabling every one of us to adopt much more sustainable life habits.

  • Addressing design from a deep sense of participation can become a neck, citing journey towards a fresh and nourishing interaction between men, object and environment.

  • It can support us on in making that giant leap to society that is nourished by the nectar of the world while turning it into sweet honey.

  • Thank you.
