Radical architecture for Hammerson's Brent Cross extension*

Link to Daily Telegraph

"With cities running out of room, the world’s ever-expanding population may soon need to find new homes. But where? Sea, sky, [* not Brent Cross] or desert? We look at the alternatives...
  • "... Masdar City promises to be the world’s most technologically advanced eco-city: 40,000 citizens living in the world’s first zero-carbon, zero-waste metropolis.
  • "... China’s Tianjin Eco-City is trying something different. The first residents, who moved in last March, will not be forced to be fanatically green, a city spokesman said. Instead, its pioneers will be used to see what designs could work in a real city, with real people.
  • "... Britain too, is finding the biggest eco-city challenge may be what people are prepared to accept. ... In July 2009, approval was given for the first Eco-Town to enter the planning process. The only problem was that locals came forward with ideas for opposing them."
