Summary
"The author not only outlines the essential elements of a biophilic city, but provides examples and stories about cities that have successfully integrated biophilic elements from the building to the regional level around the world. From urban ecological networks and connected systems of urban greenspace, to green rooftops and green walls and sidewalk gardens, Beatley reviews the emerging practice of biophilic urban design and planning, and tells many compelling stories of individuals and groups working hard to transform cities from gray and lifeless to green and biodiverse."--Publisher
