James Howard Kunstler will be talking about the crises (note, plural) in capital markets, world energy supplies and the need to make other arrangements for daily life in the years ahead–in particular, the implications for how we inhabit the landscape.
He says he wrote The Geography of Nowhere, "Because I believe a lot of people share my feelings about the tragic landscape of highway strips, parking lots, housing tracts, mega-malls, junked cities, and ravaged countryside that makes up the everyday environment where most Americans live and work."

Participants will work as a team to create 3D prototypes using Second Life’s building tools and real time collaborative environment to re-imagine the direct urban environment of The Sanctuary in North Central Troy. We will create a 3-D model of the block of 6th Ave. between Glen and 101st St.
