For centuries, our inherent alienation from nature has prevented us from truly seeing plants and understanding them as more than simple materials or decorative objects. Can design help us change our perspective and reveal their potential as allies?
Bilingual and well illustrated, the book is divided into three main chapters with essays, interviews and visual essays that look at the world of plants from different angles. The publication is further enriched with The Manifesto of Phyto-centred Design, a set of militant actions that call for new alliances between plants and humans.
