Design With Nature Now

Design With Nature Now

Fifty years after Ian McHarg’s landmark book Design With Nature (1969), the McHarg Center presents a major international conference featuring leading design thinkers and practitioners, and three concurrent exhibitions exploring McHarg's legacy around the world. A companion book brings together extensive documentation and commentary.

The Conference

Design With Nature Now: June 21–22, Philadelphia

The Exhibitions

Ian McHarg: The House We Live In

The ‘now’ means that there’s hope, there’s hope for the planet. We can address serious issues like climate change and the loss of biodiversity and growing cities, and that there’s hope for the next generation.
