Future Cities: Nature vs. Technology

How do top architects, artists and philosophers think the future city will look?

The debate will feature Sir Terry Farrell, leading British architect;
Julia Barfield, partner of Marks Barfield, who designed the London
Eye; and James Heartfield, writer, broadcaster and co-editor of
Sustaining Architecture in the Anti-Machine Age. The Participating
Chair is Hilary Lawson, Artistic Director of Artscape, philosopher
and award-winning film-maker.

What will our future cities look like? The advance of technology
within architecture and construction brings with it a broad spectrum
of possibilities in designing space - both for architects and artists
but also for the individual, with the development of electronic
networks and interactive, self-programmed environments. But in an
increasingly artificial environment, are we in danger of losing all
touch with the natural world? Are we condemned to live in a concrete
jungle riddled with electronic networks and gadgets?
