The Man and his Work

On the Measure of Man: Challenge and Response in the Anthropocosmos

The anthropocosmos (nature, man, society, functions and buildings) is currently not shaped to the measure of man. In order to deal with the future population growth and to accommodate our means of transportation, man needs to change the younger elements of the anthropocosmos, that is, the machines, the roads and the cities. The human body provides the model man needs to look at in order to build contained, human cities. The aim is to move toward a new centralization which will preserve older centers within a new higher order.
