Sustainable Shelter: Dwelling in the Forces of Nature



Sustainable Shelter: Dwelling Within the Forces of Nature discusses the techniques through which animals and humans have adapted to differing environments through an amazing diversity of structures. The exhibition investigates the ways that human dwellings extract, use, and discard energy, water and other precious natural resources and reveals innovative new design solutions that can help restore the health and viability of Earth’s natural environment.

Sustainable Shelters is organized by the Bell Museum of Natural History at the University of Minnesota.
