Design with Nature (Wiley Series in Sustainable Design Book 6)
by Ian L. McHarg
“In presenting us with a vision of organic exuberance and humandelight, which ecology and ecological design promise to open up forus, McHarg revives the hope for a better world.” –LewisMumford “. . . important to America and all the rest of the world in ourstruggle to design rational, wholesome, and productive landscapes.”–Laurie Olin, Hanna Olin, Ltd. “This century’s most influential landscape architecture book.”–Landscape Architecture “. . . an enduring contribution to the technical literature oflandscape planning and to that unfortunately small collection ofwritings which speak with emotional eloquence of the importance ofecological principles in regional planning.” –Landscape and UrbanPlanning In the twenty-five years since it first took the academic world bystorm, Design With Nature has done much to redefine the fields oflandscape architecture, urban and regional planning, and ecologicaldesign. It has also left a permanent mark on the ongoing discussionof mankind’s place in nature and nature’s place in mankind withinthe physical sciences and humanities. Described by one enthusiasticreviewer as a “user’s manual for our world,” Design With Natureoffers a practical blueprint for a new, healthier relationshipbetween the built environment and nature. In so doing, it providesnothing less than the scientific, technical, and philosophicalfoundations for a mature civilization that will, as Lewis Mumfordecstatically put it in his Introduction to the 1969 edition,”replace the polluted, bulldozed, machine-dominated, dehumanized,explosion-threatened world that is even now disintegrating anddisappearing before our eyes.”
