Futureproofing the City
From the Radical Nature exhibit at the Barbican Gallery. Listen to three different approaches to the question of sustainable living. Gerard Evenden, Foster + Partners, presents their design for Masdar, an entirely selfsustaining ‘city from zero’ in the Arabian desert, Susannah Hagan, R/E/D, addresses how to retro-fit the rapidly sprawling metropolis, taking Sao Paulo as a case study, and Bill Dunster, architect of celebrated eco-settlement BedZED, presents ZEDfactory’s current global solutions. Chaired by Paul Finch, Programme Director, World Festival of Architecture.
