Episode Summary

The City in the Image of Man: Ideas and Works of Paolo Soleri [Part III]
The third in a four part series featuring Paolo Soleri, architect-philosopher-future thinker. The series is an examination of his ideas on architecture, the future of urban centers, the Earth's ability to sustain itself under the increasing load of human population, the interaction of art and utility, the future of ideas we take for granted, (such as progress and technology), and the changing nature of man himself. Stewart Udall is on-camera host and voice-over narrator. Soleri is seen in dialogue with a wide range of persons whose concerns and expertise intersect his own ideas. A great deal of film and photographs illustrates the themes discussed. Themes discussed on this part: breakdown of industrial society, history of the idea of an ideal community, in what way ghettos have more life than suburbia, man defined by environment as well as by genetic code.moreless
