Ecopolis: Architecture and Cities for a Changing Climate by Paul F. Downton

By Paul F. Downton

From 2008, for the 1st time in human historical past, 1/2 the world's inhabitants now stay in towns. but regardless of a wealth of literature on eco-friendly structure and making plans, there's so far no unmarried publication which pulls jointly idea from the whole variety of disciplines – from structure, making plans and ecology – which we needs to come to grips with if we're to layout destiny towns that are surely sustainable.

Paul Downton's Ecopolis takes an enormous step alongside this course. It highlights the pressing have to comprehend the position of towns as either brokers of switch and technique of survival, at a time while weather swap has ultimately grabbed international awareness, and it offers a framework for designing towns that integrates wisdom – either educational and functional – from quite a number appropriate disciplines.

Identifying key theorists, practitioners, locations and philosophies, the e-book presents a superior theoretical context which introduces the idea that of city fractals, and is going directly to current a chain of layout and making plans instruments for attaining Sustainable Human Ecological improvement (SHED). Combining wisdom from various fields to offer a synthesis of city ecology, the ebook will offer a important source for college students, researchers and practitioners in structure, building, making plans, geography and the conventional lifestyles sciences.

Dr Paul Downton is a working towards architect in Sempahore, Australia
