Your Pitch

We need to shrink our cities to their smallest and most workable form. We believe that form is curvilinear and links existing cities to become a network megalopolis. This megalopolis will be energized by renewable energy coming from many sources. Proximity power and efficient/effective sequencing will greatly reduce transportation energy for the city. Shrinking the city allows reconstructing mor wilderness and the transformation of most of our plowed farmland to PERMACULTURE.
