Paolo Soleri’s Vision of Sustainable Cities
In the view of the late Paolo Soleri, “the city is the necessary instrument for the evolution of humankind.”
The visionary architect anticipated the ecological/environmental revolution as well as the need for its application to the urban environment. His vision included many of factors society has had to rediscover over the past few decades, such as local food production, increased walkability in the built environment, and passive heating and cooling systems.
