Smithsonian Presentation

I recently came across this video of a presentation I did back in October at the Cooper Hewitt. The program was entitled Food and Transportation: New Systems Approaches to Transforming Cities Sustainably. We talked about the vertical farm, food distribution, and what an integrated transportation network would look like. My segment follows Dickson’s at the 33 minute mark. Take a look.



From the Cooper-Hewitt

By the year 2050, about 80% of the earth’s population will reside in urban centers with much less space and resources available to support the current personal automobile, sprawl, and highway infrastructure-focused transportation paradigm. Speakers Dickson Despommier, Dan Albert and Sue Zielinski will present their visions for the future of cities that include models for vertical farming and transportation alternatives.
