Ecosystems Recycle Materials And That recycle materials and that the end of their useful lives can be reintegrated seamlessly back into the natural environment Each of these aspects and other attendant ones is examined in detail with regards to how they influence design and planning Ecodesign provides designers with a comprehensive set of strategies for approaching ecological design and planning combined with in depth analysis and research material not found elsewhe. ,
Good collection. For living working and leisure whose footprints affect that locality's ecology and whose eventual disposal has to be accommodated somewhere in the biosphereThis manual offers clear instructions to designers on how to design build and use a manual offers clear instructions to designers on how to design build and use a sustainable architecture The aim is to produce and maintain ecosystem like structures and systems whose content and outputs not only integrate benignly with the natural environment but whose built form and systems function with sensitivity to the locality's ecology as well in relation to global biospheric processes and contribute positively to biodiversity as opposed to reducing it The goal is structures and systems. Good handbook. Saving the environment from continued devastation by our built environment is the
Single Most Important Issue Formost important issue for tomorrow feeding into our post millennial fears that this third millennium will indeed be
Our Last Ken Yeang Reconstructslast Ken Yeang reconstructs revisions how and why our current design approach and perception of architecture must radically change if we are to ensure a sustainable future he argues to ensure a sustainable future He argues that this can only be achieved by adopting the environmentalist's view that aesthetics apart regards our environment simply as an assembly of materials mostly transported over long distances that are transciently concentrated on to a single locality and used.
