About this video

In this discussion on urban ecology, Richard T. T. Forman explains how landscape ecology models can be implemented to avoid “urban tsunamis,” the powerful, rapid expansion of cities. Dr. Forman discusses how people and nature interact and work together, the importance of design in urban centers, and land use and urban planning in different cities around the world. He urges architects to be creative, to mold the land, and to consider spatial patterns of nature and biodiversity in their construction projects.
