Monterey (California, USA)
Filosofia del progetto

A new neighbourhood in Monterey, California, sustainable not only from an energy but also from a social point of view. A major project in terms of size (240 housing units on a 20-acre site) but above all in terms of what it is intended to stimulate: a change of mentality whereby residents identify more with their neighbourhood that with their home, where quality of life is not determined by a beautiful house with a nice garden, but by living in an entirely pedestrian neighbourhood with plenty of communal space and lots of green areas. The hope is that residents will be conscious of being part of a community that knows how to save energy, that enjoys the convenience of the car without being a slave to it, that conserves and respects environmental resources and that lives in housing units conceived as examples of bioarchitecture.
