Regenerative design

“Regenerative design is a process-oriented whole systems approach to design. The term “regenerative” describes processes that restore, renew or revitalize their own sources of energy and materials. Regenerative design uses whole systems thinking to create resilient and equitable systems that integrate the needs of society with the integrity of nature. A new generation of designers are applying ecologically inspired design to agriculture, architecture, community planningcitiesenterpriseseconomics and ecosystem regeneration.  Many designers use the resilient models observed in systems ecology in their design process and recognize that ecosystems are resilient largely because they operate in closed loop systems. Using this model regenerative design seeks feedback at every stage of the design process.”
