Construction Ecology and Metabolism

Construction Ecology and Metabolism

Construction Ecology and Metabolism examines the application of principles derived from nature to the design and construction of the human built environment. Readings from ecology, construction ecology, and sustainable design are used to examine the potential for creating a built environment that is as resilient, adaptable, and diverse as ecological systems. Additionally the potential for developing a synergistic relationship between human and natural systems is studied.
