Theories and designs for the cities of the future by Italian architect, urban designer, artist and philosopher Paolo Soleri. Illustrated with photography of architectural models, and commentary by D. Wall. Soleri’s goal was to actively pursue lean alternatives to urban sprawl based on his theory of compact city design.
