Nature by Design: People, Natural Process, and Ecological Restoration (The MIT Press)
About this deal
Colors are the products of physics and mathematics but also intuitive and elusive enough to never let us rest. Sam Peters and Deborah Spencer are the husband and wife team behind Planted, a zero-waste biophilic design event launched in 2020 to reconnect people and spaces with nature. We see these as interconnected issues, ones that have been designed, need to be reflected on and creatively and collaboratively redesigned with care.
The goal should be to trigger physical, emotional and cognitive responses through sustained engagement with nature as well as foster a positive connection with your workplace.From the Middle Ages to the 1970s’ advent of HSL and HSV color models, all the exploration and discovery lead us to the three colors: red, green, and blue.
It matters because, without an adequate design survey, every business venture is a shot in the dark. Married couple Kate and Gavin Christman are working to save bees with elegantly designed household materials like the Bee Brick. An innovative approach has been taken to using planting arrangements to evoke a sense of the heritage, with a formal raised flower bed design planned in the area where the church tower once stood to planted with medical and sensory plants symbolic of those found in medieval abbey grounds.The big and bold typography, based around a lovely geometric sans, is impactful while remaining clean, relaxed and easy on the eye. Cities are responsible for the consumption of 70% to 80% of natural resources, yet that has been invisible to the many people living in them. High-profile projects like the Highline in New York City provide examples to cities elsewhere for how leftover spaces in cities can be completely transformed to connect both people and nature.
