Arcology is a termed coined by the Italian architect Paolo Soleri in 1959 to describe the
concept of architecture and ecology working as an integral system. Arcology
designs are fully 3-dimensional mega-structure cities which can (theoretically)
achieve much greater efficiencies, and promote more social interaction than
2-dimensional cities, while using far less land and consuming fewer resources.
Arcosanti, a futuristic self-sufficient community in the Arizonan desert
was started in the 1970s and has been under construction ever since.
