A proposed layout for an emergent modular eco-town initially hosting a hundred inhabitants. The radial layout puts key amenities within walking distance, enabling equitable distribution of space while easing circulation. Local earth, as main building material, helps minimize not only costs(~$7k/adult) but the cement-related carbon footprint as well.
The population would gravitate towards Dunbar’s number(150) with smaller bands of 20-40 for optimal synergy, similar to ancient hunter-gatherers. Since the carrying capacity caps at 12ppl/acre, self-replication would help with further growth but within a digitalized network managing resources inclusively, through the scientific method.
Living necessities would be secured through automation to support a progressive shift from rivalrous to integral dynamics, and extrinsic to intrinsic rewards, amonetarily. The end goal is a highly performant self-regenerative economy integrating access as a basic human right, by design.
