UNDER TOMORRWS SKY PUBLIC THINK TANK SHORT SUMMARIES

Sjef van Gaalen has posted a nice series of short summaries of the Under Tomorrows Sky public think tank introductions. Check them out here.

“The physical city as we know it is kind of destroying itself, says Liam. It is now defined by invisible boundries, airspace, traffic flows, data flows. Is the city even a city anymore? The idea of the speculative city has been abandoned for some time, but now amidst our current collapse the future is a possibility again. There’s a new city under tomorrows sky, we’re going to figure out what that might be.”
