Future Ecology Designed

Sustainable design theory manifested in products, infrastructure, and graphic representation. A utopian glimpse of a future New Zealand where environmental considerations are of tantamount importance, and society is designed to accommodate the native ecosystem.


This is EXACTLY what I was planning on exploring....

I postulated planting native trees in an inner-city site, and letting infrastructure then adapt to this new environment. I really do have to start believing in mass population conciousness now, this always happens to me.

Also interesting, the Digital Earth symposium coming up.

Otherwise, I have found some very good links at the IDSA site, as well as an indispensable PDF

The approach here is very much allied to how I see the introduction of our work, although the ecological context is obviously slightly different.

What this really made me realise is that we need to set up a framework of tangible results to show we are serious, and then really go out and talk to people about how this can be acheived- Parliament, DOC staff, Professors, local Iwi, corporate figures etc. This will mean together sorting out any Auckland rendevous' before I can be there over Easter, possibly organising some talks in Wellington as well. I think at this stage the context of the project is of primary importance, with a basic outline of our own intentions with regard to it- in effect, we need to develop a presentation outlining a self-set brief. I think this could be an initiative that would be eligible for community grants too, which is an interesting idea. The sooner we build up a network, the greater the resources we will have at our disposal.
