The City as an Individual Organism

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This talk is about the city as a single organism.  

I'm the technology manager of an experimental micro-city called Arcosanti. It's a one-of-a-kind "urban laboratory" in the desert in Arizona. It's size, isolated location, founding philosophy, and commons infrastructure make it a perfect case-study to undersand the shifts that happen when the sharing economy reaches 80%+ of a population. 

We'll talk on how centralized "sharing economy" and social technologies can develop the city into a conscious being. What are the impliations for our life and work when we see the city as an extension of ourselves?  Come find out!
