In this lecture, I will present the results of several research projects on urban biodiversity and design from New Zealand, Sweden, Western Australia, and St. Petersburg (Russia) including the most recent studies on lawns as an ecological and cultural phenomenon in time drying climate and searching for alternative nature-based solutions. The concepts such as many natures, developing new biodiversinesque landscape architecture approach, and examples from Living Labs will be also discussed.
