"Symbiotic Living" is a new forthcoming book and web site by Fred Oesch. It is a comprehensive and resourceful overview of timeless accessible regenerative design and building solutions, which facilitate healthful, energy independent, autonomous living.

"Elements of Timeless Design & Building Solutions" suntitled, the book advocates a synergistic Nature - Mankind symbiosis, through the poetic metaphors of the five vital elements; Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit. It is the first and only book to associate these classical elements with contemporary cutting edge Design & Building philosophy and practice. Presented as a timeless yet contemporary means by which designers, builders, and the general public can achieve healthful harmonious autonomy, the book may also be a reference model for future generations. Examples of the author's completed and visionary projects are presented, with poignant writing, beautiful photographs, and detailed illustrations by the author throughout.

This book represents the culmination and distillation of over 30 years experience and professional practice in the related fields of Design & Building. While not intended as a "How-To" book, it is more of a you too "Can-Do" book. Readers who follow the author's ideas and examples will be better informed, inspired, and empowered to participate in their own Design & Building projects. The author provides readers with state-of-the-art vital concepts, and an introduction to the systems and methods that they need to create a more harmonious personal living environment and lifestyle. When readers finish, they will better understand and appreciate their alternatives, opportunities, and means which are both accessible and affordable. In short, this book is a timeless inspirational guide and a moving testimonial to the potential of the human spirit and our built environment.
