ECOLOGICAL DESIGN SIM VAN DER RYN PDF

The EDC is a design and consulting practice providing comprehensive services though the non profit Ecological Design Institute established in The EDC collaborates with clients to design and implement ecologically and economically sensible design solutions for projects varying in scale and function from single family homes to whole communities, from ecological land planning to schools and agricultural facilities. The EDC is designing for a future that faces formidable challenges — peak oil, climate change, pollution, the depletion of water, air, soil and ecosystems — oceans, rivers, wetlands, forests, croplands. EDC works in collaboration other architectural firms to design ecologically and economically-sensible solutions.

The heart of Collaboration is face to face open communication between clients and design teams that integrate knowledge across disciplines. The process begins not with numbers and metrics but through creating shared agreement of aspiration and intention, opportunities and constraints. EcoDesign is a meta-disciplinary approach in which diverse interests and expertise fuse into shared vision which generates collaborative solutions. The Techno-Sphere includes all the ways humans design systems that support current civilization.

The extent or overlap and congruence of these two spheres predicts the relative success or failure of Ecological Design.

View fullsize Resiliency The survival of modern societies depends on making a design shift from the rigid instability to flowing resilience at every scale of human settlement. Improve the helath and diversity of local ecosystems. Be beautiful and inspire us to higher levels of awareness and action.

At the center is a measure of a final product in human, environmental and economic performance. View fullsize Ecological Learning Curve For years as a Professor and consultant to schools at levels from pre-school through high school, I imagined in my mind a picture of how all the elements of learning at different ages could be represented in a diagram that integrated learning levels with place, pattern, and process and also spatial scales of natural and humanly created systems.

The Ecological Learning Curve is that diagram. The learning age levels is represented vertically from bottom to top. As their minds and brains grow, they begin to learn patterns, and later, the processes that shape our world. The scale of systems — natural and invented — is represented horizontally from the largest on the left to the smallest on the right. Through each stage of civilization. How am I Nature?
