Ecopuncture - Transforming Architecture and Urbanism In Asia Paperback
About the book
There is a pressing need to integrate the blue, green and grey; to merge water, greenery and built elements in new ways that create robust socio-ecological systems. Asia is witnessing a staggering loss of human, social and natural capitals, partly due to the way we build. The problem isn't that we aren't Green enough; it's that Green may be the right answer to the wrong question. Should we stay the course and do less harm? Or is there a need now, faced with a pressing global crisis of ecology and climate, to do good; to heal, repair, and regenerate? Ecopuncture: Transforming Architecture and Urbanism in Asia returns to the heart of the sustainability question: how to forge Human-Nature partnerships, and restore our place in the natural world. What's good for the planet, it turns out, is beautiful and profitable in more ways than we had imagined.
