This will be San Francisco after 100 years according to IwamotoScott Architecture, winner of the â€œHistory Channel City of the Futureâ€ contest. IwamotoScott visualize the city run by Hydro-Net, using â€œGeothermal Mushroomâ€ configuration to take out heat and water from the earth, and quirky â€œFog Flowersâ€ to provide moisture from the air and cultivate algae, which would then be converted into hydrogen fuel.
The innovative design combines the most ground-breaking green technologies with San Francisco's exceptional microclimate and geologic conditions, to create a persuasive image for the future. It is a wide-ranging set-up of above ground and underground systems that accomplish infrastructural needs for the progress of people, water, hover-cars, and energy all over the city. Check out the amazing images of the future world.
