“Ecological Urbanism - A New Landscape Paradigm”

Can ecology and cities coexist? Can urbanism ever be ecological and at the same time meet the developmental needs and aspirations of people? The answer…. YES.  An ecological approach to urbanism is a more holistic approach and is an alternative way of thinking and planning our cities and communities.  How do we create such cities? What does it mean to be ecological in an urban context? The landscape design strategy for a 125 acre high density, mixed-use project in Bangalore, India is a step in that direction. This session will elaborate on how we have incorporated this new approach towards landscape design.
