Designing cities as living systems

Resource / Designing cities as living systems

By Heidi Hauf / 02 May 2017

This week in our Living Grid explorer, we're asking what human systems can learn from the rest of life on Earth. In this short blog, John Thackara discusses what we can learn from nature to shift the way we approach urban design beyond a focus on hard infrastructure towards a whole-system approach, paying attention to the health of those places that keep the city fed and watered.

What might the implications of this be? What related resources have you seen?
