TOWARDS NEW CAPITAL - CANARY WHARF & THE ISLE OF DOGS - LONDON [ RCA SECOND TERM ]
81% of the food we consume is imported. 1/3 of all the food we buy is thrown away. Londons sustaining footprint is 125 times its physical footprint.
WE ARE NOT SUSTAINIBLE
UTOPIA DOES NOT EXIST
THIS IS NOT A MASTERPLAN
Project to 2070, imports of food dried up forty years ago, our self reliance has nessecitated the development of uber dense enclaves of selfsubsistance, and
self sustinace, each enclave provides the optimum population density with the exact ammount of energy and food.
How can we ensure our future without subjugating our culture and our quality of life?
Enclaves reach critical mass of populous to ensure a rich and vibrant urban life, the convivial city epitomised, experienced through its connected plazas,
parks and squares, the roofscape provides for food and energy, whilt serving as a playgrounbd for the time rich live/workers.
At what cost? all the desires wants and needs are provided for, resisdence in the enclaves are highly coveted, a new super gated community, played out in full,
the ruinous city left behind serves only as a reminder to the failed unsustained urbanism of the 20th century....
An exodus for the 21st century?
