Esta filosofía se basa en que las acciones y los pensamientos del individuo deben centrarse en el medio ambiente por sobre todas las cosas, tanto en su cuidado y la conservación. El ecocentrismo expone un amor hacia la naturaleza como ser abstracto total; se relaciona con la hipótesis Gaia . Al contrario que el antropocentrismo , que el sensocentrismo y que el biocentrismo , el ecocentrismo se preocupa por preservar ecosistemas y especies, no por conservar la vida de individuos concretos.

Uno de los representantes del ecocentrismo es Pentti Linkola . 52 Uses for Coconut Oil - The Simple, The Strange, and The Downright Odd! - Delicious Obsessions. Free Plans. Several free plans by Owen Geiger are now available: Preview the Economizer House Plan here.Economizer House Plan PDF.

Clever, Cool Rainforest Office Is a Natural Wind Tunnel. © Betillon/Dorval-Bory When you're building an office in the Costa Rican rainforest, cooling is going to be a big concern.When that office is for a group dedicated to the environment, so is the energy used to keep temperatures down.

This design offers an innovative solution: it uses physics and the heat from the sun to make the building into a natural wind tunnel, so there's always a refreshing breeze. Low Tech Magazine on How To Heat And Cool Cities Without Fossil Fuels. © Diego Marmolejo for Low-Tech Magazine One of the fundamental problems about covering sustainable design is that really, the single family house doesn't matter in the larger scheme of things.

We spend so much time covering passive houses, for example, when they and all of the other green houses shown on every design website don't add up to a rounding error when it comes to where people live in most of the world, which is in cities. Neglected New York City Phone Booths Converted into Communal Libraries. © John Locke The days of the phone booth may be numbered in New York City: with the flood of smartphones, vandalism and lack of maintenance, it may be time to re-think how else they might be used. Local architect John Locke's proposition is to convert them into communal libraries or book drops, complete with brightly coloured shelving, much like your bricks-and-mortar institutions. Like similar projects in Los Angeles and Britain, this NYC version was created as part of Locke's "Department of Urban Betterment" (DUB) project.

Sustainable Development, Smart Growth and Agenda 21 Now Illegal in Tennessee. Does it Make Sense To Use Photovoltaics To Heat Water? How Biophilia Can Improve Our Lives - Part II. © Neil Chambers Biophilia needs to be applied to urban design more often in more places. Doing so would make people healthier and happier. In the past, incorporating inspirations from nature into buildings was both necessary and beneficial - think of the high windows and ceilings of pre-war apartments that allowed abundant daylight, surrounded by moldings of flowers and animals, overlooking pocket gardens and trees on the street. Modern constructions employ convenient manufacturing that overlooks quality of living.

But we are returning to a period in which designers are beginning to pay more attention once again to the ways in which nature interacts with our built environments. How Biophilia Can Improve Our Lives - Part I. Cspruit/CC BY 2.0 Biophilia is the study of our innate love for the natural world. Biologists and ecologists have championed it for decades. Brought to the attention of the world by E.O. Wilson nearly 20 years ago, the theory says people love natural spaces like forests and meadows because we evolved within these ecological systems. Now, we've replaced living interconnected with nature with suburbia and megacities, and this change has complicated our ability to live healthy lives.
