Living City Design Competition
Register/Submit: Wednesday, February 02, 2011

Imagine a truly sustainable future.
Imagine a socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative civilization.
Imagine what tomorrow might hold for humanity if we rise to meet the challenges of today.

Unleash Your Imagination
The international living Building institute, in partnership with the
national Trust for Historic Preservation, invites the world’s most
talented and daring designers, planners, artists and animators to
create a new global vision: a breathtaking, compelling model for
the future of civilization. Unleash the power of your imagination to
envision a city capable of thriving through the centuries – one that
will heal the land and prove that the human species can in fact live,
in the words of E. o. Wilson, as ‘part and parcel with creation’.

We have inherited and reproduced a built environment based on
the catastrophically flawed premise of unlimited resources and
infinite room for expansion. our infrastructure isolates us from the
ecosystems we inhabit; what James Howard kunstler has described
as a “Geography of nowhere” blinds us to the specificity of place.

If we are to respond effectively to the environmental crisis we now
face, we must begin by radically reimagining our neighborhoods,
towns, villages and cities.

Only when we have clearly envisioned the future we must create,
will we have the courage to light “the Possible’s slow fuse”.
