A Particular Place

Ecological design begins with the intimate knowledge of a particular place.  Therefore, it is small-scale and direct, responsive to both local conditions and local people.  If we are sensitive to the nuances of place, we can inhabit without destroying.

Sim Van Der Ryn and Stuart Cowan
