dc.description.abstractAbstract Ecological architecture is not always concerned about techniques. Sometimes a good relationship between architecture and nature can also bring ecological effect in either mental or physical. In the past thousands of years, the most important thing for architects is to guide people’s behaviors by giving space a corresponding shape and atmosphere. Even today, this fact does not change too much. When exploring the relationship between architecture and nature, many architects tried different ways. In most cases, the border between architecture and nature is very clear. However, sometimes it can be rather ambiguous. The difference between architecture and nature will become too subtle to be distinguished. Some architects even try to use nature to build architecture, which is a reversal of past buildings. In the last thousands of years, people’s thinking mode is taking nature as a site, and architecture should be built on that. They never thought nature itself can be a part of the architecture, which can also satisfy the demand for guiding people’s behaviors by giving space a corresponding shape and atmosphere. The buildings, which are between the definition of architecture and nature, can also be taken as ecological architecture. Their technical strategies are just more obscure and more ingenious. There are three kinds of ways to form an interior nature space—nature permeates into buildings, natural feeling inside buildings, and nature occupies buildings. They can also be defined as nature outside buildings, buildings simulate nature and nature inside buildings. One of them is also involved with mechanical techniques so that the building can change the lighting condition indoors. In conclusion, this kind of discussion about the relationship between nature and architecture can be taken as another kind of passive ecological buildings. However, they are not intended to control the physical properties of buildings. They just introduce nature into buildings in a different way.
