We western people, we miss something fundamental: we lack a philosophy that enables us to enter a sustainable era. We are brilliant at inventing new innovative technologies, but technologies alone won't get us there. Otherwise, we would've been there already. What we need is a new fundamental philosophy, a new poetry of everyday life, a new perspective on how we live and treat our environment.
That’s why we designed a city that inspires its inhabitants with such a new perspective. The perspective shows that our future is nothing more than our past, organised in a different way. This perspective can give a deeper meaning to the world around us, so that we handle it with the care it deserves.
