Multi Use Design and Arcology Theory


One theme of “green architecture” is the idea of MultiUseDesign.

Building materials that go into the construction of a building should as often as possible, do several things, so as minimize the use of materials, such as increasing the energy efficiency of the building, providing structural integrity, while being sandwiched and integrated within the other components of the building, to provide significant architectural form.

Arcologies are multi-use designs in that they emphasize the power of architecture to affect people, while encompassing a more practical and ecologically sane mode of urban design.
