To infinity and beyond – Season 01 Episode 12

The design of any building is an act of looking into the future. The look of our cities and neighbourhoods evolve with every building that architects design.

Throughout history, many architects have had aspirations for what our cities should look like. Some designs have shown buildings interconnected with nature, others are dystopic visions of cities run by machines without any considerations for people.

Whether architects are mainly concerned with climate change, emerging technologies, or changes in the social structure of work, there are many things that are going to change the fabric of cities in the future.

In this episode of Hearing Architecture, we’ve asked architects from around Australia what our cities and towns will look like in 2050.
