Ecological Urbanism, Edited by Mohsen Mostafavi with Gareth Doherty
Harvard University Graduate School of Design
We are excited to announce an upcoming book launch at the Storefront for Art and Architecture for the exciting publication of Ecological Urbanism.
Ecological Urbanism considers the city with multiple instruments and with a worldview that is fluid in scale and disciplinary focus. Design provides the synthetic key to connect ecology with an urbanism that is not in contradiction with its environment. The book brings together practitioners, theorists, economists, engineers, artists, policymakers, scientists, and public health specialists, with the goal of providing a multilayered, diverse, and nuanced understanding of ecological urbanism and what it might be in the future. The promise is nothing short of a new ethics and aesthetics of the urban.
The book compiles numerous and extensive essays by Mohsen Mostafavi ANTICIPATE, Rem Koolhaas, OMA, Homi K. Bhabha, Daniel Raven-Ellison and Kye Askins, Sanford Kwinter, Ulrich Beck, Andrea Branzi, Charles Waldheim, JDS Architects, and Bruno Latour among others. This book promises to be a comprehensive tool for rethinking and reintegrating humans and the environments around them. For our New York City crowd, this should be a fun and educational event.
