Uusi Kaupunki Collective: EXPO2100 – Home and City in the Future

What if the future is not yet lost? What kind of changes and decisions in our society and our built environment must be made today to give us a bright tomorrow? The Studio exhibition Uusi kaupunki Collective: EXPO2100 – Home and City in the Future opens six windows into the future based on the collective’s research.

Everything we build must be made to last. The buildings that are now under construction – or at least the materials used in them – must last for hundreds of years. Architects must improve their foresight skills and ability to look ahead much further than they are currently. The built environment must be developed within the limits of nature’s carrying capacity, in such a way that the environment increases well-being for both humans and all other species.

Fortunately, there are many routes to a sustainable future. The six teams of the Uusi Kaupunki Collective envision six different perspectives on dwelling in the year 2100. The joint scenario outlines the prerequisites for pursuing a sustainable future and shows what kind of alternatives and choices can produce a well-built environment and comfortable homes.
