Ecology and Codesign

Architecture and planning, ideally,  supports a great diversity of integrated human activity.  Stanley's co-design is about sensitively inquiring into a citizen's round of life and their desired environmental stimuli.  As an educator, I help youth respond to their environment by experiencing it as organisms within a living ecological system.

Together, we are currently developing methods to fine tune the connection between ecology and co-design.   I prepared some graphics to illustrate some ecological principles for teens so that codesigning their environment can be a part of their ecological education.  Some basic ecological concepts are illustrated below.
