Three Disc CD and Two Disc DVD Set

When you fight nature, you lose. As this Collection vividly brings to life, ecological design systems are far more efficient, economical, profitable and humane than current design norms. These practices are far less harmful and toxic, and restore natural capital and social capital.

In place of today’s failed brute-force approaches that attempt to dominate the natural world, these breakthrough innovators are demonstrating sophisticated ways of designing buildings, vehicles, technologies, cities and social systems to interact intelligently and harmoniously with living systems. From systems thinking and Biomimicry to Green Chemistry, “social biomimicry,” urban design and clean technologies, this Collection will enliven you with just how advanced the Ecological Design revolution is.

This is for the physical disc set. It is also available in digital download format here.
