Abstract: Ecological building is building in a manner that integrates the ecological, cultural, economic and political elements of social-ecological systems in an effort to define sustainability in a rapidly changing world. Ecological building is forward-looking, focusing on opportunities to shape the future by building resilience and seeking opportunities for favourable transformations in the built environment. Much of the emerging effort addresses the grounding of resilience concepts in practical actions that foster sustainability of desired system attributes. Fundamentally ecological building is conceptually founded in planetary stewardship that seeks to the reorient the relationship between society and the biosphere.
