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"!

Why build shelters when it’s your homes job?

What one thinks it should be and what it is, is two different things. Here we are now, just as in pass, looking at our country and other countries crumbling from the inside outward! The infrastructures were never designed to endure for any real deration. Engineers and architects have been in a rut for centuries. In addition the leaders of our societies have never built their communities to co-existence with its environment. Did Byzantine, Romanesque, Gothic or Renaissance architecture save the societies that created them? I dare say not. Their designs were faulty then and they are faulty now. And as it is today, their infrastructure came into ruin at the same time their economy faltered, leading ultimately to the fall of these societies. It also seems that a lot of the technology that was known to each is lost to the world for sometimes and then reemerges only to come to ruin again and again. Don’t you feel that this vicious cycle needs to stop!

It is time to rethink the world we construct around ourselves! To learn to “build to flow with nature and not to resist it” so we can co-exist with nature this time around. As it is, every building constructed today is built to resist nature.  What advantage has arisen from building to RESIST NATURE? Just war and conflict with nature has come of this and at the expense of everyone and everything.

Now think of structures that collect and stores power and water harnessed naturally from the environment around it. Or even that when a storm is headed directly at your community, storm warnings were a thing of the past. Instead a storm was looked upon as an asset to the community, for it would bring life and not death, through the harnessing of the nature energy stored in a storm as well as water that may come with it. Homes and business would withstand nature’s fury better by allowing a natural disaster to flow around, under or through the structure and or community. The outcome of building to resistance against natural disasters coupled with the ill use of our natural resources to build said structures and communities has always been the same for 1000s of years. It has always led to collapsing of economies, the destruction of the community, diseases & contamination to the environment and the people, and then ultimately the death of these civilizations.

We can no longer ignore the truth of the matter when considering a square building to a round or curved building and their survival rating before, during and after a nature disaster. Or the heavy toll nature and human alike must pay for these failures. We have seen many advances everywhere else in our world. Yet they still allow square trailer homes to be built in tornado alley! Please raze your voice and be heard in your community and educate other on how they can “Build to flow with nature and not to resist it” by taking into account the “Natural disaster environmental history or your region”!

Underground shelters won’t cut it.

The Natural Disaster Environmental History Code (N.D.E.H.C.) would state;

This code is to apply to all Structural Engineering Design Provisions and all materials there in. As well as the exterior materials, window, doors, et cetera.

Definition. Natural disasters are natural, they have been happening for millions of years. When designing, the natural disaster history of the region for where the structure is to be built is relative and must be taken in to account before a new structure is built. Meaning, any new structure regardless of use is to meet this code.

Reasoning. Nature cannot flow around a flat surface. A square is not wind, water, fire, or earth dynamic. A square structure impends the flow of nature and therefore will succumb to its fury. Where as spheres, cylinders, pyramids, eggs, cones, shells, and teardrop structures in nature and in modern society, allows nature and its fury to flow around, over, under or though, with no real resists.

Design. With natural disasters such as, flash floods, mud slides, wildfires, tornadoes, tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanoes bearing down on us we need to build to flow with nature like other living species on this earth have learned to do. Thereby, the structure is design to flow with nature not to resist it. Wind, water, mud, fire must be able to flow under, over and around the structure without hindering its flow. Cities and towns must be designed to allow water, wind, fire and magma to flow under, over or around it. None shall impend the natural flow of nature.

Concept. Build to flow with nature not to resist it, for to resist nature is to oppose nature. Moreover, to oppose nature is to be in conflict with nature. To be in conflict with nature is same as to be at war with nature. A building or any other structure should be designed to flow with nature not to resist nature, if not all you have is a war shelter for nature never sleeps and thereby is always at war.

War is not an option when the human race and all life on earth is concerned. We have all the technology to go to the moon, send probes deep in to space, build guided missiles, and un-manned drowns to kill but we can’t even mandate new codes for tornado alley? Why is it that a leader can mandate some things but others are forever lost in the bureaucratic red tape? If it was mandated that all new construction of any type of structure comply with the Natural Disaster Environmental History Code (N.D.E.H.C.), the obliteration of communities, it’s people and the environment that encompasses it, would become but a trickle, compared to the floodgates opened wide right now and for the last 30 odd years! The International Building Codes (IBC), by passing this new code restriction, would find even a larger roll in the “Sustainability / Build Green” movement in our world and at the same time save lives.

If I could do anything to help our world, it would be to bring this building code change. Yes, I would love to use this site to promote building design ideas but that is not why I started this site! It is and always will be to save live, land, and our natural resources through building code improvement. The only way that change can be accomplished is to distinguish the natural disaster environmental history for the region one is to build. This information is readily available to any who seek it right on the net. The world and it’s inhabitance can not afford to wait.

Please do not let my absence from this site diminish how I feel. I have lost the ability to go on line as I please! I WOULD RATHER DIE THEN GIVE UP ON MY DREAM TO BRING CHANGE! TO THOSE WILLING TO HELP IN ANY WAY I WOULD BE HUMBILY IN YOUR DEBT!
