    Learning from Ecosystems: The Deployment of Soft Systems in the Canadian Arctic

    Authors: ,

Abstract

The physical infrastructures of the twentieth century – those of roads, rail, air, data, sewage, and water amongst others – have tended to operate as singular and independent systems. The infrastructures of the twenty-first century, if they are to respond to impending urgencies with respect to resources and climate change, must investigate efficiencies and symbiotic relationships; to the pairing of infrastructure and landscape, infrastructure and public amenities, infrastructure and architecture. The pressure of urbanization in the Arctic provides an ideal site to test intelligent and soft systems that learn from ecosystems.
