Why we need design guidelines for Urban Non-Humans
Paul Downton
Creation of Ecological Cities

  • People need to move beyond the ‘selfie’ view which includes a bit of nature for urban portraiture. Further, “Accepting that biological processes are set by the nature of systems and not by the predilections of the human animal.”
  • To give priority to the needs of nature and requirements of non-human species certain appropriate design guidelines, rules and regulations need to be established.
  • The society views nature in a monetary expression in return of profits or services, but natural systems need to be recognised formally and spontaneously as having intrinsic value.
  • “Urban design guidelines for non-human species would certainly demand compact urban forms that released as much of the landscape as possible for non-human use.”
  • The implementation of these guidelines would form a new core in urbanism that has the potential and capacity for an ecological civilisation,” in which taking care of non-human species will, in turn, enhance the capabilities and conditions of the human animal.”
