What is Next Nature?

With our attempts to cultivate nature, humankind causes the rising of a next nature, which is wild and unpredictable as ever. Wild systems, genetic surprises, autonomous machinery and splendidly beautiful black flowers. Nature changes along with us.

    Dear Rolf,

    I like the idea of improving the shape and impression necessary windmills make very much, coming back after my holidays it struck me that something so beautiful as a clean form of energy should impose so on the landscape, we also saw the largest windmill field near San Fransisco. However, I feel your idea still needs more work closer to naturalness. Maybe smaller rotors in more shapely trees? Placed less obviously amongst a real forest? cleaner air and cleaner energy that sounds great to me. I hear women are planting the desert with thousands of trees. Best of success! Hanneke

  3. I’d like to see these with spiral turbines instead of conventional propellers.

  4. Schoolbook example of a so-called ‘progressive nostalgic’ design strategy.

    The association between “cleaner air” and “cleaner energy” is a typical nonsense of the dialectic of ecology. The cleanliness of air and water is of little significance for the electric turbine and its operator. At best, the input is left untouched, but doesn’t get cleaner in the process, and the output is still largely wasted.
