GREEN BRAIN:
A SMART PARK FOR A
NEW CITY

Directives for the new
Urban Ecology: The
public park will be the
central place of the city,
the heart of the circle.  It
will bridge the artificial
divide between nature
and culture.  The park will
be a harmonized
environment. It will
balance its own energy,
waste, air quality, water,
and economy. A
self-sufficient village of
500 will serve as
prototype and laboratory.  
Sculptural follies will
control climate locally by
radiant heat in the winter
and a cooling mist during
summer time.  
Constructed wetlands
will remediate waste
from the park. Existing
farms will continue in
use.  Everything is
calibrated to walk-time:
pedestrians will be
privileged.  The park will
be highly diverse, both
great and responsive: a
place of pleasure, health
and learning.
