The Urban Landscape Of The Future Podcast

The following is a member post written by Mark Sackler and originally posted on Seeking Delphi™ podcast. Mark is interviewing Cindy Frewen, the APF’s current Chair. The views expressed are those of Mark and Cindy but not necessarily of the APF or its other members.

“All cities are mad, but the madness is gallant. All cities are beautiful, but the beauty is grim.”–Christopher Morley

Where will you live in 2050? What will the cities of the future look like? Tomorrowland? The Jetsons? Waterworld?

Maybe they will look pretty much the same, but feel very much different. To sort out some of the possible scenarios, I sought out an expert on the urban landscape of the future: Cindy Frewen, Ph. D.

Cindy Frewen, Ph. D. is an architect and an adjunct professor in University of Houston’s graduate foresight program. She designs near-term urban futures and constructs scenarios for possible longer term futures.
