Maurie Crow presented the paper at the "What Sort of City?" seminar which was held in Melbourne in November 1987 to discuss ideas for an "alternative society". It was the last document prepared by Maurie before his death in April 1988. Maurie was one of the authors of the book "Seeds for Change - Creatively Confronting the Energy Crisis" which was published by the Conservation Council of Victoria in 1978. This paper presents the ideas of "clustering and connecting" which are proposed in the "Seeds for Change" model.
