It's an interesting idea except that it doesn't create a "lean society." One
of the more enlightened elements of Soleri's vision is the frugal or lean
society idea. I think in Soleri's heart he is trying to create a utopian
society that doesn't have the harsh contrast between the rich and the poor.
To create a casino like an arcology is not looking deeply into the social
architecture of Soleri's overall vision.
my two cents!
