The History of the City’s Future

Today more than half of the world’s population lives in cities. Facing climate change and finite supplies of fossil fuels, therefore, also means facing urban challenges. How does a city change when transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energies? What effects do renewable energies have on urban systems, sustainability, and mobility?

The exhibition “Post-Oil City: The History of the City’s Future” presents a host of innovative city planning projects in Asia, Africa, and the Americas. The exhibition has been produced by ifa and curated by ARCH+. The finissage of the exhibition worldwide will be presented in collaboration with the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning, German University of Technology (GUtech – affiliated to RWTH Aachen) in Oman.
