“The future is already here, it’s just unevenly distributed.” - William Gibson

Collage of images from the Futurescape City Tours projectThe future will probably not look or feel like Star Trek or many of the sleek, minimalistic visions that we associate with science fiction. The future will contain people with all of their quirks, power plays, surprising displays of beauty, and messy intentions. It will contain yesterday’s architecture and today’s legislation and tomorrow’s technology.

In this way, the past and the present are good indications of what tomorrow will bring. Yet we must train our eye to notice emerging trends, early signals of change, and cracks in what’s normal to begin to appreciate what’s evolving. 

On the Futurescape City Tours we will explore the past in the present, signs of the times and the ways in which the future shows up now through photography taken by participants during a walking tour of your city and informal conversations with local scientific experts.
