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.
