NEED TO BE ORGANISMS
WITH THE EARTH
Architectures need to be organisms playing harmony with the earth and humans.
For the provision of a pleasant space, Gaia House is the incarnated shape of Baubiologie,
which the relations of human and building, building and other living creatures,
and these creatures and their environments (soil, water, air and plants)
are harmonized and helpful to each other.
PLANNING OF GAIA HOUSE
Air, light, heat, moisture, water and sound are all essential for a space.
The method to control these elements
is crucially important to optimize their features.
Building materials and arrangements being added to these primary elements
for consideration, Gaia House is planned in comprehensive points of view.
Gaia House is designed in comprehensive points of view after building materials
and arrangements being added to these elements for consideration.
BUILDING MATERIALS AND PLACEMENT
Building materials need be of fine texture and have the function
to adjust temperature and moisture, to absorb unpleasant noise,
and to emit no strong stimulant to the eyes.
They also require the moderation of impacts, easy maintenance and utility.
Elimination of energy consumption is also another significant factor
for building materials.
Placement leads to eliminate energy consumption and to give people comfort
and relaxation from taking the air, light, sound, community,
and power of nature into consideration.
PLANTS, WATER AND SOIL
Plants enhance the quality of air from its placement and bring good air current.
They also have the function to adjust temperature and moisture,
absorb unpleasant noise, rest the eyes,
and help stop the spread of a fire to the neighbors.
Water contributes to the growth of plants,
enhances the quality of air and brings good air current from its placement.
It has the function to adjust temperature and moisture, absorb unpleasant noise,
emit no strong stimulant to the eyes, and makes a pleasant sound.
It also plays an important role to save our lives in emergency situations.
Soil, also from its placement, has the function to enhance the quality of air,
adjust temperature and moisture, absorb unpleasant noise,
as well as to grow plants and give people favorable texture.
NATURAL LIGHT AND ARTIFICIAL LIGHT
Natural light brings good air current from its placement,
adjusts temperature and moisture, and exerts a bactericidal effect.
It also affects human’s physical and emotional health,
as well as the lives of animals and plans.
Adversely, it causes deterioration of buildings.
Artificial light has strong stimulation to human bodies
and influences on tiredness and sleeplessness.
