To explore an alternative paradigm for sustainable design, this book investigates a model of open systems evolution based on scientific foundations of the Second Law of Thermodynamics and complex systems science. It states the creativity of the universe appears as the emergence of order via the mechanisms of open systems evolution, a manifesto of the Post-Modernism world-view. Furthermore, the book argues this novel paradigm of open systems evolution implies a conceptual framework for sustainable design, an intelligent model of buildings and cities, adapting to the natural ecosystem and ensuring positive impact upon it, and a contextual design strategy for ecologically symbiosis with nature, an order of buildings and cities.
