"This exceptional book presents the enduring wisdom of Ian McHarg to a new generation. His insights, freshly interpreted in the pages of landscape designs and drawings, give me hope for the future of our planet."
—Bruce Babbitt, Former U.S. Secretary of the Interior
"Ian McHarg would be heartened, I think, to see the range and quality of thinking he's inspired. Each of these essays will leave you with an enlarged sense of possibility, which is a great gift in a constrained world."
—Bill McKibben, author, Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?
In 1969, Ian McHarg’s seminal book, Design with Nature, set forth a new vision for regional planning using natural systems. To celebrate its 50th anniversary, a team of landscape architects and planners from PennDesign have showcased some of the most advanced ecological design projects in the world today. Written in clear language and featuring vivid color images, Design with Nature Now demonstrates McHarg’s enduring influence on contemporary practitioners as they contend with climate change and other 21st-century challenges.
