Byøkologi og æstetik - et koblingsunivers mellem sted og rum: Ph.d.-afhandling

Research output: Book/ReportPh.D. thesis

Abstract

This thesis considers urban ecology as more than a grass roots movement on the one hand and a technical regulation on the other. It is argued that urban ecological initiatives do not evolve as selfsufficient activities but evolve in concert with new thinking on aesthetics. The philosophical background for developing such aesthetics is presented and on this basis current ecological activities are analysed. Finally the role of the architect as a unifying factor linking urban ecology and aesthetics is discussed. The object of this thesis is to move urban ecology from its isolated existence and to consider it in a wider perspective - in connection with today's design. The subject has been further developed and is published in a book titled 'Ecology takes form' with an extended summary in English. The summary is available on the homepage (http://www.sbi.dk).
