An interdisciplinary concept founded on landscape architecture, urban design, and ecological sciences, Biourbanism is a method that assists mayors, city leaders, and city planners to create healthier, more resilient cities. Biourbanism is centred around
five urban and five bio systems that analyse city health: economy, energy, mobility, structure, technology, water, food, waste, landscape, and humanity.
Put simply, the research-led philosophy asserts that cities must be considered a form
of nature in response to global climate challenges.
Join Adrian McGregor, chief design officer of McGregor Coxall, professor, and author, for a discussion on Biourbanism and realistic roadmaps for cities and communities to achieving resilience.
