Summary:
Beginning in the 1920's with the work of R. Buckminster Fuller, moving through the 1960's and the Counter Culture and ending on the doorstep of the 21st century, the film follows the evolution of ecological design from the visions of a few independent thinkers to the powerful movement it is now becoming. Each designer explores their design process including such artifacts as solar architecture, arcologies, bioshelters, living machines, pillow domes, engineered biospheres, solar aquatics, city farming, domed cities, gossamer vehicles, solar transport, electric vehicles, soft energy systems, solar communities and ecological cities.
