Paper Abstract

Nature builds by 1) use of local, inexpensive, available often recycled materials which 2) are self-ordering or growing by attributes shared between the material and environment; 3) repair themselves, 4) sense and adapt to changes in the environment daily, seasonally, and yearly; 5) easily disintegrate and recycle back into the material sink when their usefulness is at an end; and 6) do not harm the environment, but perhaps enhance it or resolve problems.
