Design with Nature Now, with Dr. Frederick Steiner
A celebration of the 50th anniversary of Ian McHarg’s book!
On this special rebroadcast, Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham talk to Dr. Frederick Steiner, Dean of the University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design. Dr. Steiner is at the vanguard of resiliency thinking and is also the author of Design with Nature Now, a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Ian McHarg’s seminal book, Design with Nature, which set forth a new vision for regional planning using natural systems back in the 1970's. McHarg's principles are more powerful than ever, especially along the coast, and Steiner is making sure we don't forget what we once knew on how to plan and design new communities that are less risky. A great discussion. Only on ASPN.
