Synopsis: Including 35 previously unpublished essays, What If? represents the mature thought of one of the 20th century’s most provocative architects. Accompanying the text is an extensive four-color commentary by the author that expands on, and often challenges, his arguments. A detailed glossary explores such essential Soleri concepts as miniaturization, frugality, "esthequity," and the much-discussed Urban Effect.
