To stop the Devastation around the world because of the building design practices is my Mission! For the true way for Preservation to be workable, is to stop the Devastation we create through these practices. Case in point, the antonym of Devastation is Preservation! Stop the Devastation of our communities and start Preserving them, Build to Flow with Nature not Resist "IT"!

To be or not to be

Chili, one more lesson we didn’t need to learn

Now we see Chili aftermath, the death toll rising, the ecological damage, communities crushed, economical devastation, insurance & health care problems at the braking point, and still no true outcry for reform in building codes. And yet, compared to most countries, Chili did have more codes in place then most. Unfortunately, these codes were overlooked in much of the new construction. According to news reports, there is to be an inquiry.
I must say however, that I do not think that Chili’s codes have gone far enough. Chili, like all the other countries, builds to resist nature. Resistance it not an option, we must learn to build to flow with nature not to resist it. As the rock on the beach, nature must be given the respect it deserves by being allowed to flow and not be hindered in “It’s” path. We must be like the rock on a beach, and allow nature to flow around us. We can no longer build cube forms, for they will always fail! Nature cannot flow around a cube, only “PUSH AGAINST” it, the same goes for water and earth. In some cities, the wind speeds do to “Cube” structures is overwhelming! Then you throw in nature own furry and your just asking for disaster. PLEASE stop the devastation around the world, start change, learn your local “Natural Disaster Environmental History”(N.D.E.H), promote build code change in your area!
In closing, thank you “Democracy Now” and Roger G Bilham for your input on this issue on your March-2nd show this year, it is much appreciated.
