When you fight nature, you lose. As this Ecological Design Media Collection vividly brings to life, ecological design systems are far more efficient, economical, profitable and humane than current design norms.
In lieu of today’s failed brute-force approaches that attempt to dominate the natural world, these breakthrough innovators are demonstrating sophisticated ways of designing buildings, vehicles, technologies, cities and social systems to interact intelligently and harmoniously with living systems. These practices are far less harmful and toxic, and can actually restore natural capital and social capital. From systems thinking and Biomimicry to Green Chemistry, “social biomimicry,” urban design and clean technologies, this Collection will startle you with just how advanced the Ecological Design revolution is.
