A building that respects human and nature has to take part in the ecological cycles of the topography within which it is located; it has to be in situ instead of being extraneous. In this context, the building has to be formed by the materials of its topography and when its life is completed, it could be mixed up with the soil of the land it is located. At the same time, a building should have positive influence to people it in holds.
