MOVING FROM URBAN SPRAWLTO THE CITY OF THE FUTURE: THE IDEAL CITY
The next 30 years will see the greatest migration of people into cities in the history of the Earth. Unfortunately, existing cities have not adapted well to organizing increasingly larger populations and continue to use massive amounts of fossil fuel energy power. Consumption keeps increasing while waste production is contaminating more space in the air, land and seas.
It will take a new and innovative arrangement of high-density tall buildings and corresponding transportation system; along with a paradigm shift in supply of air, water, food, energy and building systems; for cities to survive and flourish.
This design employs a tripartite approach of integrating ecological, sustainable and high-performance elements into one synergetic system. Through System Design, most of problems facing cities are solved, not only on immediate levels, but also external environments with Second Green Revolution of food production techniques coupled with a Net-Zero Water and Waste recycling.
