Dynamo Island : The Cultural History and Geography of a Utopia (Paperback) (David Scott)
About this item
Dynamo Island is an account of a contemporary ideal world set in an Ireland-sized island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. It expresses the possibility of a modern society living in harmonious ecological balance with its environment. The ethos of the place is built around the notion of the human being as a dynamo managing and self-regulating energy in a way that draws on without harming the natural world. One of the island’s main features is that there are no cars, only bicycles along with a comprehensive public tram and electric train network.
