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.
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.
