In an era of high-tech and climate extremes, we are drowning in information while starving for wisdom. Enter Salvage off grid platform, a design movement platform on indigenous philosophy and vernacular infrastructure to generate sustainable, resilient, nature-based technology. This platform includes modern technology and millennia-old human ingenuity on how to live in symbiosis with nature.
Salvage continuously research and develop ideas and processes that re frames our view of what technology is, what it means to build it in our environment, and how we can do it differently, to synthesise the millennia of knowledge that still exists.
We develop symbiotic relationships, which are the fundamental building blocks of nature. Our off grid technologies are born of symbiotic relationships with our environment, humans living in symbiosis with natural systems.
Relate to the nature in the way we build
Salvage believes that, with global awareness of the climate crisis growing, and a groundswell of young people up in arms, the time has come to reassess our approach to sustainability and innovation.
We can see change happening because we see it every day. This is a huge step in the right direction towards shifting, elevating and re framing how we build and how we urbanise here in Salvage.
It's a time where we're looking for something different in the urban environment, and in the way that we build and relate to nature. It is a moment for us to take stock, to re contextualise that framework of industrialised, digital high-tech or high-tech living, which removes us from nature, and re frame the potential of the toolkit in our urban environments.
Salvage re frames our view of what technology is, what it means to build it in our environment, and how we can do it differently, to synthesise the millennia of knowledge that still exists. Technology has been born of that and is symbiotic with ecological processes, from the micro to the macro.
