Ecological Design

An approach for human settlement and agricultural systems that are modeled on the relationships found in nature. Forms of design that minimize environmentally destructive impacts by integrating themselves within living processes and linking all design fields together.

  • Energy & Materials– site analysis, zones and sectors, harnessing the natural phenomenon (sun, water & wind)
  • Water– hydrology, water in the landscape, capturing and storing, security and quality
  • Food– remediation of natural ecological systems, permaculture design methods, keyline agriculture, biodinamics and organic farming
  • Soil– different types of soil, understanding the bio-communication and microorganisms, mycelium and the distribution of nutrients, growing soil, composting, sheet-mulching
  • Education– open source and free information, experiential learning, collaborative learning
  • Ethics for a next century perspective – appropriate technology, equality, re-empowering environmental values, equitable distribution of resources, cybernetic systems (human ethnospher working with the biosphere)
