The theme of this article is regenerative design - а new notion for Russian architectural practice. It is very wide and it contains many different aspects of interactions between human and nature. Regenerative design can Ье regarded as а new step of SustainaЫe design, where architects are moving from "do not suffer" to "give back" target, and it' s not only recourses issue like in Energy+ concept. It means that ar­chitecture must sustain and support ecosystems with their human and non-human socie­ties. The term was first time used in the architectural field Ьу the landscape architect Peter Busby, who was encouraged Ьу regenerative agriculture idea. In 1994 the Center for re­generative studies designed Ьу professor Lyle in collaboration with international students­professors-experts team was opened in Calif ornia at the same time with puЫishing Ly le' s "Regenerative design for sustainaЫe development". The Center have become а main case study of the book: 12 regenerative design principles described Ьу professor were illus­trated Ьу the project. Since that time many researchers were involving regenerative design vision. Some modern concepts are given in order to understand the overall meaning of the subject. The regenerative design experience of Canadian architect Peter Busby and Perkins+ Will company is described more detailed through the vision which is given in Busby's book "Architecture's new edges". One of the valuaЫe features is understanding the need for human co-evolving with nature. This is а good basement for re-thinking the architectural practice from its very beginning.
