Brooklyn NY, 2110
The Future of the Future

July 29 - October 25, 2010

Urbaneering - Our primary
assertion for this future city
in Brooklyn 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 happen, how we
get there is dependent
upon our planned
preparation and egalitarian
feedback.
