Ben Guest Edits FormAkademisk.

Dr Ben Sweeting has been guest editing a special issue of the journal FormAkademisk with Marie Davidova and Birger Sevaldson, which has just been released: https://journals.oslomet.no/index.php/formakademisk/issue/view/414

Papers have come from the Relating Systems Thinking and Design conference in 2018 in Torino.

Papers include two from ecologist Tom Snow, where Tom presents a fractal model of ecosystems and uses this to propose an integrative system of production. They are enlightening in the context of our interests in circular economies, urban agriculture, and ecological thinking. Ben worked with Tom Snow and with M’Arch student Davis Mak in his specialisation project about Living Soil, and this bore fruit in Davis winning our Waste House Award for Circular Design.

This is the fourth special issue that Ben has guest edited to be published this year. The full list is:
