The Future of Urban Design

Wall-E postcard

In a report released this past month entitled “It’s Alive,” Arup’s designers, planners and engineers imagine what the built environment might look like in 2050.

Extrapolating from current and emerging building design concepts, the report envisions modular plug-and-play building components, net-negative energy footprints, climate-reactive facades and integrated transportation systems.

What I really want though, is one of those Food-a-Rac-a-Cycles from the Jetsons, so I can eat whatever I want at the push of a button.
