I‘ve only recently, in the last year, come to know of the works of Jacque Fresco and his Venus Project, so my knowledge of his background is fairly limited. What I do know, however, is that the guy is an incredibly sharp 95 year-old civil engineer, industrial designer, architect, illustrator, and a huge inspiration to me.
What I initially thought were just really amazing sketches and models [see above], were actually proposals and concepts for his Venus Project. Apparently the purpose of the Venus Project is to eliminate poverty, war, prejudice, and homelessness by eliminating the need for money, or as he describes it, “creating a resource-based economy”, and embracing the use and expansion of technology. Sounds a bit sci-fi, right? Definitely looks like it, but apparently the Venus Project is well underway in Venus, Florida, where Mr. Jacque Fresco resides. Apparently you can even schedule tours of his home, which is designed around these very same concepts. Definitely something I’d like to see in person, for sure.
