As society transitions from the industrial age into the information age we may find ourselves adopting models which echo the past more-so than our 20th century expectations of the future. The dissonance of the hierarchical structures and one-way communication streams of the industrial and broadcast era is slowly being resolved by network oriented thinking associated with current computing paradigm. This network oriented mode of thinking is mirrored in the tradition of permaculture – and it is the opinion of the author that a synthesis of both is one means of resolving the technology/biology dialectic.

A great set of images and resources on traditional Indian Stepwells, which once served as an invaluable resource not only as water capture devices, but also as cool, fresh public spaces in arid climates.  The other images are from an Andropogon project in India where we proposed uniting old and new technology by restoring and re-imagining on-site stepwells to serve as vital community spaces on a new hi-tech university campus.
