Living Systems: Innovative Materials and Technologies for Landscape Architecture, by Alexander Robinson and Liat Margolis, Birkhauser 2007. Available in English, German, French, and Chinese editions.
Excerpt from review in Landscape Journal by Eric Ellingsen:
"Action theory is an alloy methodology, a methodology of inseparable simultaneity. On one hand, as the cognitive scientist Gerald Edelman states, it embraces the neurological idea that thinking is itself efficacious. On the other hand, it endorses post-Galilean scientific methodology, which calls for the systematic testing of hypotheses through action rather than through thought alone. The methodology of action theory organizes everything in Living Systems from the index to the images."
