So if we look at Arcosanti as a demonstration project, it looks much more successful than if we look at it as a city.
In a way, I think its too bad that it is only a demo project. I'd like to live in a city like that.
One major concern that I haven't seen addressed is fire. If a fire begins in a building the size of a city, how do you prevent it from gutting the entire thing? Fireblocks and airlocks sound good in theory, but a hot enough fire will generally find a way around such things.
