Acrology [Noun.]


Arcology, a portmanteau of the words architecture and ecology, is a set of architectural design principles aimed toward the design of enormous habitats and hyper-structures of extremely high human population density. These largely hypothetical structures would contain a variety of residential, commercial, and agricultural facilities and minimize individual human environmental impact. They are often portrayed as self-contained or economically self-sufficient. The concept has been popularized in many science fiction novels.
