“For too long, the field of architecture has been strained by economic dependencies, short-term planning, and ego-centric thinking, draining it of its creative powers and problem-solving qualities.  Living Systems, a practice for planetary architecture, urbanism, and technology, aims to fundamentally reconstruct the architectural practice through applied research, integrative design, and alternative financing models, developing approaches for human habitation that respect the planet's boundaries, serve the common good, sustain life at scale, and nourish the future.”

Enmeshed in an ongoing partnership, Neo-Metabolism has provided Living Systems with identity development, including linguistic and aesthetic expressions of their work, from the moment of inception. The common ground between our practices consists of shared convictions about models of cooperative housing, equitable (urban) living, and globally distributed workspaces.

Together with Living Systems, we developed the principle of Enoughness, which defines their practice, and ours. We believe taking the simple yet critical question of sufficiency as a radical departure point, can deliver much needed systemic change.

How much is enough?
