Abstract

Depictions of future cities can play an important role in shaping our thinking on cities and our future urban strategies. This report explores the ways future cities have been depicted over the last 100 years and considers what these depictions sought to communicate and why. Its aim is to identify and understand the types of cities visions which have had the most influence on UK cities.
