Some people believe that architecture and design can improve social conditions for people. We already know that "green" building standards reduce our carbon emissions and save on energy. Right here in South Central Florida, the Venus Project is beginning to lay out plans for a futuristic way of life. Read and see more on their website. Field trip anyone????
From their website: "Phase One of The Venus Project is the twenty-five acre design center in still pristine south-central Florida, where the future is currently taking shape. The actual buildings and conference center are supplemented by models, illustrations, blueprints, posters, books and video presentations. These are the first steps that have been completed to help one see, feel, and touch the future."
