Bioregional Urbanism: Connecting Scientific Metrics to Design
Authors: Philip Loheed AIA NCARB Assoc ASLA, Ninian Stein, Sarah Howard, Patricia Loheed
Bioregional Urbanism is an emerging framework that helps communities apply natural resource budgets and GIS-driven suitability analysis to design projects at different scales, enabling cities and regions to become measurably more resilient and self-sufficient. A team of designers, scientists, policy and community practitioners at Earthos is developing and applying the frame in regions around the world. This session introduces the research, theoretical frame, practice methods, and applications.
