At the end of last year, we ran an internal project trying to imagine what control rooms might be like in 2030. What was interesting wasn't especially the thoughts on the work space but the wider sociological issues that might drive change in the control of our infrastructure. We imagined a world where congestion and climate change had driven a move to localism creating hubs where all aspects of our environment were managed from.
Further thinking on what the world might hold in terms of the way we work and live and how technology might change our world can be seen at the Sony Futurescape website. There are some interesting videos imagining four different scenarios for the future. Take a look...
To continue the theme, CCD recently sponsored a brief for design students at Loughborough University to take on during their design week. We will be posting some of the results here soon.
