Book Description:

What would a future Western city look like if per capita energy consumption was reduced by 60%? This is the central question that researchers have been trying to answer in a sizeable backcasting study that has been going on in Stockholm for the past few years, and the answers are in this book.

In Images of the Future City: Time and Space for Sustainable Development, fourteen researchers from numerous disciplines offer details on various aspects of a future sustainable city, including travel, housing, eating, time use, consumption, and urban form. The result is a complete illustration of what it could be like to live in a city based on sustainable energy use, with Stockholm 2050 as the geographical and temporal setting. This book is an ideal complement to studies showing the potentially devastating ecological effects of climate change, studies trying to calculate the costs of climate change, and studies trying to identify the most pressing needs in preparing for the new climate.
