In the full article Heckenberger mentions the fractal patterns
 
For more references to Heckenbergers articles see the thread about the Xingu towns:

Actually, I am not much interesting in Heckenberger's claims, that I consider a bit fantasious. I am interesting in the supposedly fractal distribution of towns. Do you have a paper on that specific topic?

Well, Heckenbergs claims are based on his own and other researchers archaeological excavations, investigations and surveys in the the Upper Xingu and other areas of the Amazon.
In the above mentioned article (you can find the full version in the library or other places) he briefly discusses the fractal nature of the precolumbian Xingu settlements and clusters of settlements.

I see, I lost interest in the topic, then. Heckenberger sounds me as serious as Van Danniken.

At least he has conducted archaeological excavations and investigations in the Amazon and seen the remains of the precolumbian large settlements. And he is not the only one, there are several projects going on with excavations, investigations, surveys and analyzes  of the large settlements in the Amazon. The remains are there.

large is a relative world. Let's see the result of all these in some years more. It would be interesting if they find really something new in the Amazons, rather than just deposits of Terra Preta and a lot of speculation.

Yes, this research is interesting to follow.

There are also efforts among Amerindians to create new architecture with roots in older traditions and in a sort of Amerindian aestethics. One example is this intertribal center in the US designed by Amerindian architects.

Hey you forgot to add a Tlaloc or two as decor so as to disguise the Bauhaus aesthetic...jimminy crickets to what lengths does the ridiculous have to stretch so as to claim subliminity!?!
 
These antics have now become little more than patronizing pomposities.

As I said, it is archtecture in a modern style but with its roots in, and inspiration from, Amerindian aestethics. The company that designed it is a company consisting of Amerindian architects.

Again, your lack of knowledge about South America is appaling. This is nothing new. Never seen Rio's Cathedral, inspired in the Mayas?



Never seen a Latin American Catholic Bible?



Never heared Andes music or seen the logos of the Skyhawks?


In architecture, Maya art influenced Art Deco, and you can find alegories of teepees, rucas and traditional huts all over the Americas. Again, nothing new.

Indigenous art is part of the heritage of the Americas and exist in the mainstream from Alaska to the Land of Fire. So, please, stop making the clown.

Where did I say this was new? I just took one example mostly because I recently read about it. Especially I thought it interesting since the concept was drawn by a company created by, and consisting of, amerindians who want to make archtitecture that has its roots in their own cultural background.
Noone denies that there are other examples.
 
It seems that you just invent some straw man.
