The self-sufficient city: Envisioning the habitat of the future
In the final Melbourne School of Design Dean’s Lecture for 2015, Vicente Guallart will outline a blueprint for a world built around cities and their renewed capabilities to become productive again, a vision grounded on a data analysis of cities and their behaviours. Based on the premise of his recently-released book of the same name, the lecture will explore Guallart’s thesis that the self-sufficient city promotes ideas and projects for transforming the urban habitat based on principles of local self-sufficiency and global connectivity.
