In the 1970s NASA Ames ran a series of summer studies for space colonies that could hold 10,000 people. On this page, and below the fold, is the artwork from those studies. Wonderfully optimistic stuff.

They're from the NASA Ames site Space Settlements, which has a lot of links to interesting material on the subject of space colonization.
