Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sim Van der Ryn and Stuart Cowan present a vision of how the living world and the human world can be rejoined by taking ecology as the basis for design. Ecological design intelligence-effective adaptation to and integration with nature's processes-can be applied at all levels of scale, creating revolutionary forms of buildings, landscapes, cities, and technologies.

The authors weave together case studies, personal anecdotes, images, and theory to provide a thorough treatment of the concept of ecological design. In the process, they present and explain a series of design principles that can help build a sustainable world with increased efficiency, fewer toxics, less pollution, and healthier natural systems.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [185]-194) and index.

About the Author

Sim Van der Ryn is professor emeritus in the department of architecture at the University of California, Berkeley.

Stuart Cowan, who received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley, is principal of Ecological Design Team.
