Ecology inspiring engineering - a functional approach
Monday, 15 October 2012
By Bastian Etter* and Andreas Schoenborn, Switzerland

jump.jpgGood solutions require inspiration. Looking for it can be a tedious endeavour, as we all know. As a technical discipline, engineering relies on a high inspirational input, to quench its thirst for well-applied solutions. However, to find the fitting function, engineering needs to go beyond the inherent technology. In the case of ecological engineering, the employed technologies are claimed to be ecological. As a consequence, ecological engineers may find appropriate answers in ecology, and particularly, in ecological systems.

Transforming cities - the eco-tech approach
Monday, 03 September 2012
iees_symposium_2012.jpgBy Bastian Etter, Switzerland

How can future cities become greener? How can we reconnect our urban living space to nature? What is green and what makes it green? Tempted by the idea of simply peeling off a city's concrete cocoon, to revert to its natural functions and forms, the International Ecological Engineering Society debated on visions and ways ahead during their symposium held at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) in January 2012.
