The Future Cityscape by @liran_tsu
I believe that to explain or try to give my interpretation of sustainable architecture, one must contemplate what would have happened to architecture, to public space, and to its existence, had it not been for the concept of sustainable architecture. it would not have been perceived as an important milestone in our lives.
For a direction of thought which is a bit different, at least so it seems at the beginning, I recommend watching the Blade Runner movies. The director, Ridley Scott, presents an interesting architectural interpretation about our future in a society that the concept of sustainability is forgotten.
The future cityscape in which takes place is one that appears to have absorbed and accelerated the worst effects of our contemporary late capitalist economic model.
Within the metabolic movement, Urban metabolism represents an area of study that is considered promising in interdisciplinary research of cities and sustainability. The term urban metabolism is a concept in which the city is analyzed using the biological notion referring to the internal processes by which living organisms maintain a continuous exchange of matter and energy with their environment to enable operation, growth and reproduction.
The view of cities growth as ‘normal’ and not as the reason for social demise (like in the movie), because a city behaved like an organism it grew and changed, and thus underwent naturally periods of disintegration and reintegration.
At the heart of Metabolist thinking is the reorganization of the relationship between society and the individual, with this the Metabolists suggested an organic link between the individual and a fundamental cultural pattern.
