Regenerative Development and Design: A Framework for Evolving Sustainability

Regenerative Development and Design takes sustainability to the next level, and provides a framework for incorporating regenerative principles into your current process. In this book, Regenesis co-founders Pamela Mang and Ben Haggard explain what regenerative development is, how and why it works, and how you can incorporate the fundamental principles into your practice. A clear, focused framework shows you how to merge regenerative concepts with your existing work, backed by numerous examples that guide practical application while illustrating regenerative design and development in action. Regenerative design and development positions humans as co-creative and mutually-evolving participants in an ecosystem—not just a built environment.

The Integrative Design Guide to Green Building: Redefining The Practice of Sustainability

Regenerative projects are nothing if the work cannot be sustained and integrated coherently through time. The integrative design process offers a coherent process for addressing complex issues that threaten living systems through built environment design. In The Integrative Design Guide to Green Building: Redefining the Practice of Sustainability, integrative design pioneer and Regenesis principal Bill Reed and the principals at 7Group introduce design and construction professionals to the concepts of whole building design and whole systems. With integrative thinking that reframes what sustainability means, they provide a how-to guide for architects, designers, engineers, developers, builders, and other professionals on incorporating integrative design into every phase of a project.
