Design: History Channel Explores The Future With City of The Future

This years winning San Francisco entry from IwamotoScott Architecture

The History Channel is counter-intuitively taking a look into the future along with the AIA. The City of The Future is a contest focusing on three cities this year -- Washington D.C., San Francisco, and Atlanta and what they might look like in 2108.

According to The History Channel Website: "8 teams in each city will have just one week to envision what their city might look like in 100 years, before presenting their 3-D model to a panel of five esteemed judges. The winner in each city will win a $10,000 Grand Prize and go head-to-head in an online vote where you will have the opportunity to choose the National Champion! " had high praise for this proposal from Fougeron Architecture that dots 40 story tall "agricultural towers" throughout the city, giving the Bay Area a self-sufficient supply of food.
