Council House Two, or CH2 as its known, is the eco-office block of the future, and many of its design principles have been taken from nature. In this video clip, meet architect Mick Pearce, who suggests his profession should learn more from the natural world. Termites, for instance, use no more than the natural elements of the sun and the wind, to keep their nests at around 30 degrees Celsius, despite outside temperatures varying between 40 degrees in the day and below zero at night. Pearce has used this inspiration to create a building that consumes only 15% of the energy of a regular building and about 30% of the water.
