The 2017 research seminar group at SPA has projected Indian urban futures for 2037.

The theme originated from the need to look into the future more proactively to keep up with the technology and changes and more importantly to address the need to shift from more problem solving to visions – an attitude reflected in our research and our designs.

A time frame of 20 years was selected to be far enough that the projections will not be more redundancies but close enough to avoid merely prophesying science fiction.

The realms of studies include rapidly depleting resources,  climate change, increasing urbanization, rapid advancements in emerging technologies; changing social, economic and political patterns, changes in professions, issues of sustainability and environmental concerns, life-spans and life-styles and changing policies and economic systems.
