Studio III architects’ Hero Wednesday: Jacque Fresco’s “Venus Project”

Leave a comment

As usual, this post is about something interesting…not declarations of truth or heroics (most of the time).

Jacque Fresco and his “Venus Project” looks to fix the world…that’s all….very Utopian. It’s good to have a dose of Utopia every so often!

Fresco sees the abuse and misuse of technology, government and business and the threats they have imposed on our world. He puts forth solutions, some naive and some practical (…all with the next generation of problems for sure). His dialog is by far more moving then his architecture and engineering.  I would have to say its Jacques Fresco’s concern for our future and view of the problems we face the most interesting.  It’s a long video but very interesting and, yup, can be categorized under any number of titles ranging from Brilliant to Crazy….but which ever camp you hale from…it’s a valuable and interesting body of thought.
