About this book

Ecological design – the integration of natural processes and materials – can be applied at all levels of scale, creating revolutionary forms of buildings, landscapes, cities, and technologies. The authors uses case studies, images, dialogues and theory to provide a thorough treatment of the concept. In the process, a series of design principles are presented that could help build a sustainable world with increased efficiency, fewer toxics, less pollution, and healthier natural systems.

This 10th anniversary edition with a new introduction by the authors makes the work available to a new generation of practitioners and thinkers concerned with moving our society onto a more sustainable path.
