volume 1, book 1

Book 1, beginning tells the story of the first weeks of a town project — the drafting phase. During this time, the project teams cover a lot of ground from health care to business models, from ecological questions to the integration of arts and crafts, from new approaches to admin to an idea called the education squares, and all aspects of design from town planning to technological innovations. And programming plays a special role, be it for business scenarios or the invention of the Hub.

The key quotes and key scenes from book 1, beginning are published in this first volume.

quotes book 2/1

Our town experiment is not about cosying up to any political or economical view, and even less to anyone’s interests. We need to be independent. That’s the only way to explore how we can live on this planet without screwing said planet and ourselves.

volume 2, book 2

In book 2, part of the project team travel around the world to build an international network for the town project. However, the travelling team doesn’t often get a chance to focus on their ideas and plans for the town. That is why some chapters of book 2 only contribute a few key quotes to this collection. Other chapters, like South Africa, China and Romania add whole scenes.

What makes a town thrive, coexisting with nature, society, business practices and more are discussed.

The key quotes and key scenes from book 2, travelling are published in this second volume.
