Environmentalism and Space Architecture

A few years ago I heard of Nadir kahlili and his homes
constructed from natural material. He developed these homes
from natural materials in the environment with the hope of also
cutting the cost of shelter for people world wide. A Sufi
conference in san bernardino, California also featured his
concepts and toured models of his homes. For more information
To me this is the kind of positive contribution that can be made to
people struggling for adequate shelter.
Paolo Soleri an Italian Architect also had model citiy built in
Arizona on a three dimensional basis as opposed to the way
cities are hapazardly spilled out on a two dimensional plane.
Auroville in Pondicherri is another example of new ways of
finding community along the lines of the philosophy of Shri
The early theosophists at Point Loma had similar concepts I
believe as evidenced by the architecture there.
