“I choose to work within three parameters; nature, resourses and aesthetics. By “nature” I mean the Gaia theory of natural systems in which life itself controls the biosphere. Designers need to see the city as an ecosystem in which all parts are interlinked and influence each other. “Resources” are human, natural and economic. By “aesthetics” I refer to a new relationship between designer and nature where the former copies the processes of nature and not nature itself.”
