    And, my last question about this article

    So perhaps something can be taken from the chaos and decentralized spontaneity embodied in shanties, and combined with the planned infrastructure of a designed eco-city. Cities built without extensive high rises can still be dense enough to make life without a car profitable., and they retain the economies of scale needed for the new metabolism built around efficient recycling of everything from sewage to sandwich wrappers.

    I know what metabolism mean here. But I couldn't get the bold parts. Would you in a more simple way explain it?
