“Nature does it best. It designs best. It builds best. It destroys best. If you really build with nature then you’ll have a structure that is not built but rather grown.” MoMA Senior Curator Paola Antonelli introduces “Neri Oxman: Material Ecology,” the latest MoMA Virtual Views. From tree bark and crustacean shells, to silkworm webs and human breath, nature shapes Neri Oxman’s vision for the future, which contemplates humans and the rest of nature collaborating with nature to create more sustainable—and elegant—ways to make objects and buildings.
