- Building Urban Nature
> Successor to the highly acclaimed book Making Urban Nature, which saw multiple reprints
> Richly illustrated with many practical examples
> Pioneering with flora and fauna in architecture
The city is not only the habitat of people, but also of plants and animals. Building Urban Nature is a plea for nature-inclusive, bioreceptive architecture that inspires designers to give nature a place in their work.
Through the presentation of realized projects, the book shows how the values of nature can be incorporated into our buildings. It discusses the conditions under which flora and fauna settle on and around our buildings, and the design methods, strategies and techniques that can help them to do so.
Linking ecological theory with building practice, it helps designers, architects and ecologists to make architecture nature-inclusive.
