The re-integration of nature is an unfolding experiment. It is the process of integrating modern techniques and materials with natural processes to purify water and air and to grow food directly within our buildings, infrastructure, and cities. It is the process of learning from these systems and discovering the experience, connection and solutions needed to understand and create places which are both modern, resilient and ecologically abundant. From the waterways to the rooftops this experiment is underway in thousands of places, and the flavour of the future is emerging.
