Abstract How can designers deal with sustainable green infrastructure if they don’t take into account relevant scientific knowledge on, for example dissipative structure and self-organization? We do not claim to have the solution ready. Rather, we will revisit the concept of the landscape machine (Roncken et al. 2011) and converge architectural imagination with scientific insights. A recent design proposal for a landscape machine will be assessed making use of key concepts from evolutionary themodyamics and energy systems diagrams. A question that concerns the design of landscape machines and environmental design at large is how much of this scientific knowledge penetrates the design community. We stress the need for a bidirectional convergence- that is: designers exploring systems science (see e.g. Stremke and Koh, 2011) and scientists translating their knowledge so it can be applied in design (see e.g. Pulselli and Tiezzi, 2009)
