Greenfield City. Building a Megapolis of XXI Century

The world is on the verge of the third wave of urbanisation that will bring dozens of new cities to the world map in the next hundred years. At the risk of becoming an environmental encumbrance or swell to enormous proportions, these new cities will be pressured to be built expeditiously, prioritise the welfare of their citizens and environmental concerns, and employ the forefront technological solutions. 

  • What are the principles for building new cities in the 21st century? 
  • What materials are they going to be built of? What technologies will be used? 
  • In what new fields, like biology, space tech or neuroscience, might the future architects and urban planners find their inspiration?
