Articles and books

Reed, B. 2007. Shifting from ‘sustainability’ to regeneration

In this article, Reed argues that sustainability, as currently practiced in the built environment, is primarily an exercise in efficiency. In other words, the use of environmental rating systems and other mechanisms makes it possible to reduce the damage caused by the excessive use of resources. Rather than doing less harm to the environment, he argues that it is necessary to learn how to engage with the environment using the health of ecological systems as a basis for design.

Wahl, D. 2016. Designing regenerative cultures, Triarchy Press

Wahl argues that the goal of creating regenerative cultures transcends and includes sustainability. In addition, he reflects on the need to change the paradigm, and not just focus on a technical, economic, ecological or social transformation. Change begins, Wahl points out, in the way we think of ourselves, our relationships with others and with life as a whole.
