Two quite different paths to sustainability are developing; can they co-exist? I perceive two radically different approaches to sustainability developing, one of dense, ‘smart’ cities and another of dispersed eco-villages and market towns. I suspect that most advocates of each approach are at best mildly aware of the other concept, but choosing wisely bids us understand both well. A summary of the 2 approaches, their advantages and constraints, and how Hestia and Hephaestus, respectively, symbolize these options, will be presented, followed by discussion.
