How to Predict the Future of Cities ? (Podcast with Michael Batty)- Circular Metabolism Podcast ep.49

📺 Welcome to the 49th episode of the Circular Metabolism Podcast: How to Predict the Future of Cities ? with Prof. Michael Batty 📺.

🏙️ On today’s episode we will talk about the future of cities. You have all probably heard that most of the global population lives in cities and that rate is going to increase very rapidly. But what if I told you that everyone on this planet would live in a city by 2100 ? Imagine all the implications this could have and all of the subsequent questions that follow. For instance, where are those cities are going to be situated ? How big with they be ? Will they continue expanding old cities or will they be built from scratch ? 

🎓 To talk about this quite fascinating topic I have Michael Batty, an urban planner, geographer and spatial data scientist, and Bartlett Professor of Planning in The Bartlett at University College London. He has been Director—now Chairman—of the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, set up when he was appointed to UCL in 1995. His research and the work of CASA is focused on computer models of city systems. He has been the author of numerous books including: Fractal Cities, Cities and Complexity, the New Science of Cities and the most recent one “Inventing Future Cities”.
