  • The team of authors presents an architectural vision of a world where most of the population lives aided by advanced technology in nearly self-sufficient cities that offer their people better living conditions and quality environment. Within this vision, part of the agriculture is transformed and displaced, along with water sourcing and energy production, into proximity of the urban population. Increasing the quality of urban life and significantly lowering transportation demands. Project BIOM is based on this vision, an architectural concept which makes use of contemporary technology to achieve these goals. It tackles primarily architecture, urbanism, and resource supply in these future megalopolises. The problems faced by large cities are not novel, which is why the authors lean on existing research, scientific literature, and the opinions of respected personalities. This topic is closely related to the development of civilization and arising questions that society will have to resolve.
