Permaculture Vancouver meets every third thursday of the month: http://www.meetup.com/The-Vancouver-Permaculture-Meetup-Group/events/167920332/
This month we will be looking at NVC and Arcologies, how architecture and ecology meet, and how we could alter our cities and landscapes to create a more human based environment, what feeling do we have about the current state of our global cities and what needs need to be met?
Where are we now? There is a common feeling of need for change. Our language and thoughts set the course for our words and actions. Arcosanti's Architect, the late Paolo Soleri was an artist at his core. His arcologies are beautiful, consciously designed, high density bits of urban fabric. He modelled his visions after Fank Lloyd Wright who believed in matching buildings with their surroundings. Paolo's Arcosanti had 870 acres of natural landscape around it. By integrating multi-use buildings, shared space, shared reality, vertical space, and especially considering Paolo's concepts of miniturization, complexification simplification and duration can we can integrate this ecology with architecture in our cities, in our minds.
