The Venus Project envisions a sustainable redesign of our cities and civilization

Although The Venus Project offers a vision for redesigned cities , architecture isn’t the project’s sole focus. Meadows told Inhabitat, “The Venus Project is more than just architecture ; it is about a new social design. The architecture is built with that in mind and designed to conserve resources and maintain a high standard of living so the entire global population can have access to adequate housing , nutritious food, clean water, and all the amenities an advanced technical civilization can achieve. The Venus Project’s architecture is not isolated from its social direction; no branch of science should be.”
