What are the trends of urbanisation?
- Currently, 60 million people move to urban areas each year.
(United Nations, 2012)
(UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, 2013)
What will the world's population be?
How will our cities accommodate for this?
Are our cities expanding?
Where are cities expanding to?

-"Most expansion is happening upwards."

-Building Skyscrapers
-Man-made land
-Building new urban centres

Renewable energies are crucial for future cities.

Some examples of renewable energies are :
- Wind Power
- Solar Energy
- Tidal Power
- Geo-thermal energy

How has architecture evolved
from ancient times to the present?
What is the future of transport in Victoria?
The materials that will be the basis of cars of the future will be energy efficient, safe and made of modern sustainable materials.
The three main practices are:
Improving Infrastructure
Improving water sewage systems and
Reusing/Recycling Materials
Reducing demand for land/resources
Reduction of fossil fuel energy

Major problems:
using fossil fuels
bad for the environment
contributes to climate change
More sustainable practices in the future will help our cities by:

helping prevent climate change
ensuring environment is clean and healthy.
provide environmentally friendly alternatives for electricity and fuel.

We need to find an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels as they will shortly run out.

20th Century Architecture (1900-2000):

• 1900-1920 Art Nouveau
• 1900-1925 Early Modernism (See:Le Corbusier and Peter Behrens)
• 1900-1925 Continental Avant-Garde (De Stijl, Neue Sachlichkeit)
• 1900-2000 Steel-frame Skyscraper Architecture
• 1907-33 Deutscher Werkbund
• 1919-1933 Bauhaus Design (see the biography of Walter Gropius); this evolves into the International Style of Modern Architecture (1940-70).
• 1925-1940 Art Deco
• 1928-1940 Totalitarian Architecture (Germany, USSR)
• 1945-1970 Late Modernism: Second Chicago School of Architecture
• 1945-2000 High Tech Corporate Design Architecture
• 1960-2000 Postmodernist Art
• 1980-2000 Deconstructivism - see Frank O. Gehry (b.1929).
• 1990-2000 Blobitecture

Lack of resources:
within the next 100 years fossil fuels will be nearly run out

Efficient transport system
To reduce the need of fuel and oil related transport, new ideas and technologies need to be applied to our transport networks, therefore Melbourne should begin to develop underground metros to achieve a greater rapid (transport) system which will affect the way Victoria moves dramatically.
-So it does not take up land space
-To power the system
-To move large amounts of people
-A sustainability factor
-To transport people in cities
Broom Broom!
Form thorough research and evidence the future of transport is looking quite bright and will positively influence the way in which we move.
Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.
Malcolm X

What will be the future of our cities?

We hypothesize that in the future, transport will be more efficient and accessible to the public. It will be used more frequently and will be more reliable than the transport of today. Cities in the future will be more sustainable and will most likely have many more practices in place than nowadays. Cities will mostly be running off sustainable energy which will be much better for the environment as many things will be running off solar panels, windmills etc. in addition to this, architecture will also be more efficient, simple and more sustainable.

Frank Lloyd Wrights definition of an architect.
"the goals of green building are many, but among them, the most important is reducing the pollution and help build a greener earth both for us as well as for our children to come"
(A Greener Future, 2013)
