|City of the Future
Urbaneering for Tomorrow
Our primary assertion for Brooklyn 2110 is that all necessities are provided inside its accessible physical borders. We have designed an intensified version of Brooklyn that supplies all vital needs for its population. In this city, food, water, air, energy, waste, mobility, and shelter are radically restructured to support life in every form.
The strategy includes the replacement of dilapidated structures with vertical agriculture and housing merged with infrastructure. Former streets become snaking arteries of livable spaces embedded with; renewable energy sources, soft cushion based vehicles for mobility, and productive green rooms. The plan uses the former street grid as the foundation for new networks. By reengineering the obsolete streets, we can install radically robust and ecologically active pathways. These operations are not just about a comprehensive model of tomorrow’s city, but an initial platform for discourse. We think the future will necessitate marvelous dwellings coupled with a massive cyclical resource net. The future will eventually arrive, how we get there is dependent upon our planned preparation and egalitarian feedback. The center of this city is not historic cathedrals or office towers but its infrastructure. Our core belief is that cities in the future will make a spectacle of their infrastructural elements. These elements provide the basic necessities for life.
