Knechtel, John

Cl. Cambridge, 2008

Book ID: 78586

Writers and artists imagine the transition to a carbon-free future: an architect plans Velo-city, a network of elevated bikeways; a designer models a perfectly internalized, tail-chasing energy system; an urbanist examines the new Oil Cities in Dubai and Saudi Arabia; a photographer documents the social and environmental damage done by the oil industry in Nigeria; and an architect proposes that oil rigs be turned into sanctuaries for marine and avian wildlife.
