SELF-SUFFICIENT URBANISM is the most comprehensive town design mitigation plan available in today’s transitional market. It encourages the creation of sustainable urban villages and rural settlements where almost everything needed for our daily living is found, produced, created, used, re-used and recycled at walking distance from an identifiable center and in closed economic loops. Self-sufficient Urbanism focuses on the "re-localization" of resources, and on the advocacy and development of technologies attempting to eliminate our existent fossil fuel dependency and reduce our current rate of carbon emissions. This introductory pamphlet reviews the existing universal predicament and offers a positive solution of contraction, simplicity and human dignity.

Professional Reviews

Leon Krier
The ideas which Jaime Correa so eloquently illustrates in his book, will soon be common accepted wisdom. They are self-evident propositions, which have been denied for too long. As a result of ignoring them, industrial civilization now houses excessive populations, in the wrong places, in the wrong settlement patterns, building types, densities, zoning and building materials. If these principles are not soon adopted by democratic choice, the terrifying danger resides in their imposition by tyrannical necessity.

Stephanos Polizoides.
I must confess I read this book in one sitting.
