FUTURE SPACES - Moving towards the ultimate blend
Population growth, urban migration and climate change are the three major driving forces shaping the way we live in the future. This presentation outlines one probable scenario of where these global shifts are taking us.
While having to deal with limited living space in our ever growing cities we form new social structures. Our need for connectedness through interaction strengthens as does the need for nearness of nature. Enabled by our increased wealth and the endless possibilities given to us by technology we move towards blending of functions in our built environments.
Unbound by conventions the current generations are bringing about a shift in mindset in how we wish to live and work. We live where we work and work where we live, we form non-geographical communities resulting in ultimate independence. The direction is set towards blended communities in hybrid vertical cities.
