Finite Planet

The collage above represents my interpretation of what the future could be and my vision to make it better.

The circular composition focuses on the finite nature of the world resources as they were, with the natural balance of life along with the human intervention of past several years. Its defined edge denotes that it is a finite resource, and if not utilize efficiently, it may not be there for future generations. The blank space of the piece represents a void of opportunities to be filled in with the actions we take from here on, with possibilities to grow, to learn and even to fail.

The figures that stand out of the circle show how this natural world is a habitat for the human being, who transforms it through the construction of buildings and comfortable spaces to take shelter from the climate. Currently, this transformation is being done by creating buildings, using materials of high environmental impact, disturbing the balance of nature, and causing serious problems of climate change.

My interest focuses on creating comfortable spaces that are in balance with the environment and the society. This way I can positively impact the lives of hundreds of people in my profession as an architect.
