... still reconsidering Utopia, now in a more ambiguous territory
Wednesday, August 5, 2009
MX reviews last week were quite useful in establishing new goals and resolving some contradicting trends. The outcome points towards a triple threaded infrastructural "package": solar energy, water harvesting + desalination, and greenhouse agriculture. The package would operate symbiotically with a wadi condition to promote desert survival and prosperity. The "package" system could then theoretically be applied as an infrastrcutural thread connecting existing communities, forming new ones, or potentially be free standing.
