Starting position

The city is changing: no longer is it an aesthetic creation, nor purely an industrial powerhouse. It is becoming a living, breathing super-organism, with a myriad of multiple, competing functions enabling the city to dwell within its particular ecology.  As a super-organism, the future city will be defined more by its metabolism, than purely its primary function or spatial form. These bio-spheric flows of energy and materials will drive the new city and create new synergies for living.  (G.K.)
