The Spatial

Back to Lenses

This is where the cities of the future come into focus. What would a city look like, for example, if every surface could generate its own energy? More and more techniques are available that make the integration of solar energy into urban design easier and more attractive.

What does integration in our build environment really mean (practically, socially and culturally)?
What does the turn from passive solar design to active solar design require?
If the "energy is already inside” (say a house is only complete when it generates its own energy), how does that change the form or appearance of it?
