We are now living through unprecedented times where the compounded impact of our individual attitudes and behaviours are becoming increasingly visible. Climate change, biodiversity loss, waste accumulation, food insecurity, social inequality, geopolitical instability, pandemics are everyday realities mankind must negotiate. What does the future hold? The Speculative BioCities studio investigated how bio-inspired approaches to design and fabrication are shedding light on the future of our cities and the people living in them. The studio asked how the battlegrounds of race, class and culture could be reimagined, redefined and reconstructed for a new regenerative or purely speculative era.
