Abstract

Urban Green represents Neil Chambers’ vision for bringing the power of the conservation and design movements together. Taking up the concept of ‘ecomimicry’, Chambers’ priority is to see cities designed in ways that mimic the functions of ecosystems. Karl Baker would have liked to see more rigorous analysis, but feels it is a welcome addition to the on-going work of developing truly sustainable cities. Urban Green: Architecture for the Future. Neil B. Chambers. Palgrave Macmillan. July 2011. 256 pages.
