Urban Ecological Design [Giveaway]

*Leave a comment below through the end of Thursday, February 2, 2012, to be considered for a random giveaway of one copy of Urban Ecological Design.

The second book that I want to share with you is Urban Ecological Design: A Process for Regenerative Places, which is authored by Danilo Palazzo and Frederick Steiner. The book, published in December 2011, was sent to us by Island Press and documents the authors’ Not Only One Solution Process, or Noos, for transforming urban spaces in a sustainable manner.

Noos has ten phases — processes, prerequisites, knowledge, synthesis, options, dialogues, master plan, presentation, details, and implementation — that are explained in detail with illustrations in separate chapters.

This is an interdisciplinary resource for city planners, architects, engineers, and landscape architects, etc. If you’re interested in learning more about the design of regenerative places, check out Urban Ecological Design.

[+] Purchase Urban Ecological Design on Amazon.

    It will be interesting to read the different strategies that could be implemented by each part of that diverse group of architects, planners, engineers, etc.

    This book will help those who are in the LEED profession as well as architects, engineers, contractors, etc. use creativity and experiences to outlay a foundation to new ideas that will help with solutions for our future. I sure would enjoy reading this book.
