La città del futuro

  1. 1. What can we expect from our urban future?
  2. 2. In the next future pressing environmental issues will force us to reduce Co2 emissions • The mobility model we have today won't work tomorrow • Providing clean energy for such a fastly growing population is impossible. What's the solution? By 2050, 8 billion people will live in cities or in a day travel distance
  3. 3. Future cities will cut energy consumption opting for sustainable design solutions. Passive design takes advantage of daylight, breeze and sunshine to provide light, heat and cool buildings. In dispersed cities we are more dependent on transports. As the cost of providing public transport is higher, cars are dominant. Dense, mixed use neighborhoods reduce significantly the carbon footprint.
  4. 4. Green infrastructure use vegetation, soils, and natural processes to manage water and create healthier urban spaces. They connect us to the environment and allow soil and carbon sequestration. Sustainable materials will be used more and more. They are environmental-friendly over their whole life cycle, from the extraction until the final disposal.
  5. 5. What' s the way to a viable mobility? Car dependency will be replaced by integrated systems that use real time data to optimize personal mobility on a massive scale. Similar systems have been devised for Curitiba and Masdar City.
  6. 6. The key to susteinability is parametric design Computational processes (e.g. genetic algorithms) can associate the architectural properties of more elements of a design. Applied to urban planning, parametric design allows to connect the city with the environment.
  7. 7. Technology will also ease the transit from the current comsuption model to a collaborative one. The surplus capacity will be turned into shared facilities.
  8. 8. Is this what we should expect? Truth is we risk to have two worlds in one..
  9. 9. By 2030, 2 billion people will be squatters. These people are going out of poverty as fast as they can, upgrading the slums they live in. What this implies is that, in order to achieve social integration, regenerating will be prefered to rebuilding.
  10. 10. According to Un-Habitat City Prosperity Index, prosperity comes from the balance of more dimentions... • Productivity • Quality of life • Infrastructure development • Environmental sustainability • Equity and social inclusion Capital investment, formal/informal employment, inflation, trade, savings, export/import, household income/consumption Education, health, safety, social capital, public space Infrastructure (connection to services, waste management, knowledge/ health/transport infrastructure), housing (building materials, living space) Air quality, Co2 emissions, energy and indoor pollution Inequality of income/consumption, social/gender inequality of access to services and infrastructure DIMENTIONS Variables WE CAN'T FORESEE FUTURE...BUT IT IS OUR DUTY TO DRIVE THE CHANGE IN THE DIRECTION OF A SHARED PROSPERITY IN WORLDWIDE CITIES.
  11. 11. UN-HABITAT is the lead United Nations agency responsible for promoting socially and environmentally sustainable human settlements development and the achievement of adequate shelter for all. The Enhanced Normative and Operational Framework: • Effective advocacy, monitoring and partnerships • Participatory planning, management and governance • Access to land and housing for all • Environmentally sound basic urban infrastructure • Strengthened human settlements finance systems "There is a sense of great opportunity and hope that a new world can be built" (Habitat Agenda)
