"Arcology" is a term coined by Italian architect Paolo Soleri in 1959 to describe the concept of architecture and ecology working as an integrated system. Arcology designs are fully three-dimensional mega-structure cities which can (theoretically) achieve much greater efficiencies and promote more social interaction than two-dimensional cities while using far less land and consuming fewer resources.
