    Future Proof: Lamentation of Globalized Urban Front
    Our Lady of Guadalupe Terminus, NAFTA Super Terminal 110 @ St. Lazarus, Mexas, North American Union

    Super State


    “Globalization is changing the form of regions, cities and localities at a rate unprecedented in history. National boundaries are rapidly loosing their importance as trade barriers and cities have become more autonomous economic units which open up their manufacturing, commercial and financial services to international competition.

    Governments and international development agencies have advocated that globalization policies are the best way to overcome underdevelopment

    The velocity of spatial changes has become unpredictable, but it is also the speed of political and cultural transformations of society. Many important researchers have explained the appearance of the informational society, the global city, the competition of cities and the emergence of the sub-national markets, and Hypothesis has been formulated about urban convergences between Northern and Southern cities.

    Many researchers express preoccupation for the unforeseen prospects of such events, and ideas about the risk society emerges, about environmental depletion, about the increasing gap between rich and poor, and specifically concern has arouse over private appropriations of newly created values resulting from Large Urban and Infrastructure Projects. ” Rather than seeing the city purely as a macro-economic imperative, the city is seen as a social process of building and negotiations, in which different actors state their interests, propose solutions and generate decisions.

    The time-space compression created by globalization, through which rapid technological and social changes seem to surpass the character and nature of the built environment, demand a new explanation regarding urban transformation processes and the impact of large projects and programs.

    Globalisation, Urban Form & Governance,

    The proposed project on the city will attempt to establish connections between impact of globalization in social, cultural, and economic domain and its urban domain. Through narrative of the city as told through the eyes of various inhabitants and players (proleteriat, bourgeois, magistrates, revolutionaries), limitations, implications, and blowbacks of globalized habitat will be explored through poetic satyre. Like Fritz Lang’s Metropolis or PKD/Scotts’s Blade Runner, the fantastic vision of the future is not only meant to inform of us of the possibilities, but warn us of the danger of our current progress/regress.
