A habitat is an ecological or environmental area that is occupied by a particular species of animal, plant or other types of organism. It is the natural environment in which an organism lives or the physical environment that surrounds (influences and is utilized by) a population. This presentation for the Institute of Landscape Architects (ILASA) aimed to develop the concept of human habitat creation as a landscaping strategy and addressed the following questions:
1. What is a sustainable human habit?
2. What are the specific requirements for a sustainable human habitat?
3. How can sustainable human habitats be achieved?
4. Can a structured process be developed to enable this to happen at a neighborhood level?
