I like when people give a genuine try in imagining alternatives, and even if I disagree with "technical solutions for non-technical problems" I can't help but admire some stuff.

That said, I would not change Slab City over Arcosanti for anything, and the reason is simple: people. If you don't engage meaningfully with people the project will die.

I was considering both projects as non profit seeking ones.
