Design for Regenerative Cities and Landscapes



the foundations for an ecologically responsible future are discussed. The changes and transformations in the current era are so substantial that a fundamental rethink is needed in the way we develop our cities and landscapes.

This is no longer possible through reaching political compromises, but requires radical thinking and solutions, which are capable of braking through the current paradigms. Where urban societies are net depleting their resources, we should aim to replete them. From taking form our environment we need to start giving back.

This requires a shift from a predominantly mechanistic worldview, in which solutions  Pre engineered and calculated, towards an organic one, which is based on understanding systemic change, complexity and self-organisation. Here, Man is seen as part of nature and his physical demands are as important is his mental ones.

The urban society has to transform from generating stuff to regeneration the living conditions that will sustain life on the long run. The move towards ecological responsibility requires implies that man is part of nature, city is part of the landscape and both mind and stocks need to be replenished. Finally, design approaches enables ecological responsibility though grasping the complexities of systems and interactions, can ignite change through spatial interventions, and is able to be adaptive so the landscape remains changeable.
