Nick Dunn: How the Future of Cities Was Seen From the Past

Festival of the Future City


Please note: This event took place in Nov 2015

Nick Dunn, ImaginationLancaster, and author of the Foresight report 'A Visual History of the Future', looks at how future cities have been depicted over the last 100 years. He considers what these depictions sought to communicate and why; what types of city visions have had the most influence on UK cities; and the important role they have in shaping our thinking on cities and our future urban strategies.
