Goal & objective
Based on the ‘City of Being’ described in Peter Buchanan’s Big Rethink, the scheme proposes a prototypical neighbourhood that expresses connection with all aspects of the human condition and suggests an approach to individual and communal living.
A dense urban settlement as a setting for a sustainable lifestyle in which there is a richness of experience, community interaction and pervasive contact with nature.
Envisioning and realising a sustainable civilisation which is designed to encourage residents to discover, explore and grow to their full potential.
