City of the Future

Arcosanti project

I have seen the city of the future, and it looks a lot like the past, only greener.

The prototype city of the future is in the high semi desert of central Arizona, and for the past 40 years, students and professionals have come to lend a hand in the creation of this future world city.

Some say the urban lab is too futuristic, and North Americans are not ready for this sustainable, minimalist environment. I thought it reminded me a bit of HUB Mall at the University of Alberta.
