Example text

This is an acutely impressive tool. However the software does not make any distinctions about the conventions of physics and natural forces that govern each zoomed layer. In many cases the current limitations of memory also fail to provide all the essential detail within each consecutive zone. Furthermore, the material and chemical behavior of the objects and places are not described in relationship to each other beyond geometric location. Admittedly, the current trend is to restructure computation to account for these missing characteristics.

Today, this nascent interdisciplinary field is in a state of radical development (Fig. 1). 1 Utopias, for the most part, are a necessary paradigm. Utopias display maximal solutions to existing real world problems. They tackle upheaval with orderly retribution. In nearly all variations, Utopias are deliberately excessive. They overshoot the answer to a crisis to accentuate the problem. 2 It’s helpful to depict utopia like a personal membership to a health club. What is the perfect picture of a physique?

Html Rethinking Urban Landscapes: Self-Supported Infrastructure, Technology and Territory 35 Fig. T. Mobility: Blimp bumper bus (Credits: Mitchell Joachim) compact and greener cities. Imagine what the advent of the jet pack will do for cities. Urban design is greatly altered by such devices. For instance, automobiles have defined limits in cities for almost a century. Unlike the elevator, however, the car has arguably caused more problems than it has solved. Perhaps it is time for urban design to rethink technologies to fit cities, not constrain them.
