I am working on developing models and frameworks - through theory and practice - to help designers (students and practitioners) involved in the development of systems of production, both to understand, formulate and express how systems of production can learn from, and be coherent with, living systems; and to illustrate the broad range of processes and methodologies that already exist and how they relate to each other.
The framework and model describe ecosystem functions. Working within and towards systems of production that intend to be truly circular and regenerative necessitates that designers (and other stakeholders) have an increased understanding and intuition of how ecosystems function—an eco-literacy. To this end, the framework is based on foundational me...
Different branches of design are shifting from a primary focus on artefacts as ends to concentrating on means (e.g. forms of production), with ends encompassing larger societal goals. Concurrently, humanity is facing an increasingly carbon-and-freshwater-constrained world, combined with escalating realities of climate change and ecosystem degradati...
