"Essentially, there are three points that set Soleri apart from all other utopian planners groping for the next development in man. His arcologies are new communities, totally unrelated to the old urban centers--not plug-in renewals but revolutionary prototypes for a total break with existing planning patterns or theories."Secondly, Soleri postulates the supremacy of esthetics over structure and technology...."And thirdly, Soleri bases his entire arcology neither on economic, social or industrial considerations but on a philosophical system. It is so all-embracing in its scope that it relates the arcological city units to the entire evolution of organic life, from the proto-biological "Urschleim" (primordial ooze) to an as yet unresolved Neo-Matter.

This edition contains all the text and illustrations found in the giant "Arcology, " photographically reduced somewhat to allow a lower price and enhanced handleability."In the three-dimensional city, man defines a human ecology. In it he is a country dweller and metropolitan man in one. By it the inner and the outer are at 'skin' distance. He has made the city in his own image. Arcology: the city in the image of man."--Paolo Soleri
