STRATA BOOKSHELF FROM PATTERN THINKING TO DESIGNING FOR RESIDENTIAL SPACES 1: “We have been trained to think of patterns, with the exception of those of music, as fixed affairs. It is easier and lazier that way but, of course, all nonsense. In truth, the right way to being to think about the pattern which connects is to think of it as primarily (whatever that means) a dance of interacting parts and only secondarily pegged down by various sorts of physical limits and by those limits which organisms characteristically impose.” –Gregory Bateson, author of Mind and Nature: A necessary unity (Dutton, 1979) quoted in the fascinating and inspiring The Architecture of Patterns by Paul Andersen and David Salomon (W.W. Norton & Company, 2010). While primarily aimed at the home gardener at ground-level and above, the essays in The New American Landscape: Leading Voices on the Future of Sustainable Gardening (Edited by Thomas Christopher, Timber Press, 2011) are sure to interest those involved with green roofs. Of interest to practitioners and lovers of living architecture will be chapters on plants and pests, restoration of native species, edible gardening, water and “inviting the wild back in.” Gratefully, this contemporary compendium also includes chapters on green roofs by Ed Snodgrass and Linda McIntryre, and the Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES). 2: 3: Speaking of the prolific Ed Snodgrass, he teamed up with the U.K.’s Nigel Dunnett and Dusty Gedge, along with John little to create Small Green Roofs: Low tech options for greener living (Timber Press, 2011). This captivating, yet practical guide is loaded with real-life examples of small-scale green roofs on everything houses to bicycle sheds. —C.N.
