A Pattern Language for Urban Nature – The Nature of Cities

Paul Downton created this beautifully illustrated guide to thinking about cities and the ideas of urban nature. It shares a perspective that honors what we in Novasutras call agaya and ubuntu.

A book it references, A New Pattern Language for Growing Regions: Places, Networks, Processes: A Collection of 80 New Patterns for a New Generation of Urban Challenges (Mehaffy et al, 2020), is freely available here as a PDF, under a Creative Commons license (CC-BY-SA-4.0).
