Design With Nature Now Publication Available

The Lincoln Land Institute of Land Policy has realeased Design With Nature Now, edited by Frederick Steiner, Richard Weller, Karen M’Closkey, and Billy Fleming from the Weitzman School's Landscape Architecture Department, and an essay on Ian McHarg by William Whitaker, Curator of the Architectural Archives.

Description from the publishers:

"In 1969, Professor 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 the Weitzman School of Design 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."
