Architizer directs the attention to an intriguing video from NASA regarding space colonization or rather creating a human-occupied colony floating in space. The proceeding clip from the 70s explores the potential for building new cities in space.

Colonies are described to provide a self sustaining dwelling for 10k residents. NASA hoped that the colony “the size of a California beach town and endowed with weightless recreation, fantastic views, freedom, elbow-room in spades and great wealth.”

And a point which rings loudly is ” what will we do in our own time, when our lives have been colored by recession blues, thrust into turmoil by sociocultural inequalities, and destabilized by the gasps of a dyingplanetcivilization?”
