Architect Liam Young Imagines a Sci-Fi Future City Under Tomorrow’s Sky
Liam Young is an independent designer, futurist, critic and curator, and also the founder of Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today. Based in London, this imaginative think tank explores fictional near-future scenarios that foster debate about social, architectural and political realities on earth. This time the multidisciplinary group imagined how people would live in a nearby future, with a result that is organic and geological but also human.
Living in pods that grow organically and mix with existing mountains, lakes and landscapes seems to be a humble idea of a future city. Under Tomorrow’s Sky, unveiled at this year’s fantastic Dutch Design Week, references modern cities like Dubai’s City Palm Island, a unique artificial settlement with a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment centers where people live and mingle with one another. Based on a post-oil post-capitalist future, these imaginative cities seem to grow out of the ocean and creep up mountains, developing as large complex organisms that can extend as populations grow.
