This continues our report from 9/12 to 9/16/2011.

Over the past few years, Youngsoo Kim, architect in the Arcosanti Planning Department, has been working with Paolo Soleri on a series of CAD and 3D drawings/renderings for the Lean Linear City.

An enormous amount of research has been part of this effort and all of this is culminating in the upcoming publication “Lean Linear City: Arterial Arcology”. This is a book by Paolo Soleri in collaboration with the Arcosanti Planning Department.

It will cover the Lean Linear City proposal by Soleri and the philosophy behind it.

Since each module represents the basic principles of Lean Linear City, following environmental and social condition of a specific site, the form of the module can vary in many ways.

For instance, as the solar angle is different in Beijing China and Phoenix Arizona, the south facing facade and form of the module needs to reflect the local population and different regional wind movement.

The model of one of the Lean Linear City modules has been completed.
