Where do the design frameworks we use and promote in permaculture come from? Permaculture is a magpie discipline taking useful material from many places and often forgetting where it took it from along the way – what can we collectively re-member? What are the histories of SADIMET, OBRDIMET and others – and might knowing those histories inform our use of them now?
1970s – uses SREDIM in production engineerin context. 1980s – teaching permaculture, recognizing lack design frameworks adapts SREDIM as BREDIM B Boundaries and resources R Recording of the site E Examination and analysis of data D Design strategies chosen I Implementation Strategy M Maintenance requirement of proposed systeAndy Langford (b.1949)
Development of BREDIMTo OBREDIM – Addition of O for Observation From Welsh permaculture group early 1990s?To OBREDIMET – Addition of ET for Evaluation and Tweaking From within permaculture community late 1990s?

Will there be permaculture design in the new Design Museum? Why Not?
