The term ‘Ekistic Relationship’ is used to describe one’s relationship with the natural world and how one views the resources within it. ‘Ekistics,’ the science of human settlements, is the legacy of Greek architect and town planner, Konstantinos Doxiadis. Walking in balance with natural law, GeoDome-centric communities follow the honeybees’ master plan of building hexagonally rather than diagonally.

To quote a great visionary from the echoes of our past, “Those who are inspired by a model other than Nature, a mistress above all masters, are laboring in vain.” ― Leonardo Da Vinci
