While imagining the future of cities, we come across a limitless possibilities of habitat, technology and sustainability. The definition of future sustainability is limitless to a human mind. Assuming a city without fossils, opens the possibility of a world where the existence of Flora and Fauna are restricted to public museum and exhibition. This leaves us with concerns of the future environmental, social and economic aspects. Post Fossil city focusses on a dynamic approach towards dwelling and communication. The definition of Living, Working, and Movement would change by the means of alternative Energy source which would be renewable and governed by resources which would not replenish over time. With No Fossils and a major scarcity of air and water, the only source of energy would be HUMANS whose existence is assumed limitless. Imagining a city that is not addicted to fossil fuels. Interpreting the way we live and work.
