The findings are largely based on research projects, some with practical relevance, and are supported by clear graphics and a very good scientific apparatus with numerous references.

From the 19th century to the present day, Histories of Ecological Design traces the different perspectives and theories of ecological responsibility in design and architecture. Parallels and contradictions in definitions and concepts are highlighted, illustrating the diversity of perspectives on nature and the environment in the design world. The book shows that it is worth looking at history in order to shape the future. And it is an exceptionally beautifully designed book.
