The word "technology" has been
misconceived by many people. To many, technology
is anything made by electrical, gas, and
last solar. The true meaning of the word
is that technology is the science or study
of the practical or industrial arts. The
keyword is practical; practical also means
convenient. However many critics say that
nature and technology cannot coexist under
one world saying that technology, the convenience
in our lives, would eliminate nature. Some
ways they believe that technology would
eliminate nature is the gas that escapes
cars we drive. But really technology started
out as things that were made out of nature.
Like for instance early humans used sticks
that came from trees and stones from the
ground to make spears for hunting animals.
But my project shows how technology and
nature can coexist as one.
In my project I show the fusion of technology
and nature. First as you walk into the
lobby, you will see long, gleaming tables
made of the finest stones and formed into
mosaics like the ones found in train stations.
Some seats look just like the tables and
other seats are shaped to look like metal
bolts. Then as you look down, you see a
tiled floor that leads toward the reception
desk. At the top of the reception desk
you see three speakers that look like globes.
It gives you the realistic view of hearing
the morning news through the globes as
if the world is calling out to you. Lastly,
on each side of the reception desk flat-screen
TVs will show upcoming events in the school.
To many, technology is a danger to nature
but in my point of view technology and
nature can coexist because they can live
off of each other as a unified coalition.
