Ian McHarg championed using ecological analysis and factors to inform planning and design. The Design with Nature mandate has been an integral part of the design process at The Olin Studio since the beginning. Using his vast experience and an array of projects as case studies, Laurie Olin will demonstrate how they have incorporated nature and ecological analysis as a framework for the studio’s design goals. These examples will show how the seminal ideas of McHarg are relevant today and can be adapted to inform effective, creative, and environmentally sound planning and design solutions for a variety of conditions, scales, and typologies. Through an overlay of cultural and natural factors, Olin will challenge us to use ecological knowledge as metaphor and inspiration for invention.
