New TOPIC: SUSTAINABILITY- Going “Green” …Our eyes do not divide us from the world, but unite us with it. Let this be known to be true. Let us then abandon the simplicity of SUSTAINABILITY Going Green this be known to be true. Let us then abandon the simplicity of separation and give unity its due. Let us abandon the self mutilation which has been our way and give expression to the potential harmony of man-nature. The world is abundant, we require only a deference born of understanding to fulfill man's promise. Man is that uniquely conscious creature who can perceive and express. He must become the steward of the biosphere. To do this he must design with nature.” p.5 “Clearly the problem of man and nature is not one of providing a decorative background for the human play, or even ameliorating the grim city: it is the necessity of sustaining nature as source of life, milieu, teacher, sanctum, challenge and most of all, of discovering nature’s corollary of the unknown self, the source of meaning.” Ian McHarg, Design With Nature, 1969
