This paper examines and compares several different sites in Sweden in addition to one in Mexico regarding whether the ecological requirements theses sites have had during planning and construction has affected the design in any way. Is it possible that, for different reasons, one thinks "like nature" when one thinks of ecology and, if true, how does this reflect on the spatial and structural design? This paper tries to identify if some sort of general design expression is used in projects with requirements on ecological sustainability. In total, five projects have been compared in different areas such as choice of materials and their composition. These projects have an ecologically sustainable processing of water in common, although most also have ecological consideration in other areas as well. All projects except one (Xochimilco) have been initiated in Sweden at the end of the last decade and the differing project has been added to show an alternative approach. Since ecologic sustainability is a core factor for the relevance of inclusion of theses five sites in this paper, this term is discussed in depth, partly regarding what it entails but also how it's grown into common usage and how and in which context it's actually used.
