The way we stage, organize and construct our environment will determine what roles we play in society. If the arrangement is to maximize the revenue and return to bankers, then the society will become an investment game. The focus will become dollars or any number of sophisticated, market oriented strategic economic situations which essentially ignore the spiritual fulfillment of humans living in cities. To live above ground, in flexible, self-sufficient cities, through our technology in order to coexist with other living species on Earth is the core purpose of Aerial City.
Local architect and active member at the University of Michigan School of Architecture, Sahba La’al, has been working with the University of Michigan 3D Lab to visualize various concepts related to the Aerial City project including the creation of unique designs in various real-world locations.
The project has been featured at several international conferences and exhibitions and is under continued design and refinement.
