Entry from British & World English dictionary
The use of living plants as an integral part of the design of buildings.
- The timing proved fortuitous: this was during the greatest habitat building boom in known history, and the demand for ecodesign and biotecture was immense.
- Biotecture also extends to the use of shelterbelts and windbreaks to modify the climate around and within a dwelling without modifying the dwelling itself.
- The aim is to give people an 'instant' biotecture-type structure, which would otherwise take many years to grow.
