Kate Orff has an optimistic and transformative message about our world:
we can bring together social and ecological systems to sustainably
remake our cities and landscapes. Part monograph, part manual, part
manifesto, Toward an Urban Ecology reconceives urban landscape
design as a form of activism, demonstrating how to move beyond familiar
and increasingly outmoded ways of thinking about environmental, urban,
and social issues as separate domains; and advocating for the synthesis
of practice to create a truly urban ecology.
practical terms, SCAPE has already generated numerous tools and
techniques that designers, policy makers, and communities can use to
address some of the most pressing issues of our time, including the loss
of biodiversity, the loss of social cohesion, and ecological
degradation. Toward an Urban Ecology features numerous projects
and select research from SCAPE, and conveys a range of strategies to
engender a more resilient and inclusive built environment.
