Food for the City. A Future for the Metropolis
In 2050 nine billion people will be living on earth, 75 percent of them in cities. If we go on at this rate, we will need several extra planets for the production of our food. ‘Food for the City’ examines how we can keep feeding our cities.
Ever since Carolyn Steel’s international bestseller ‘Hungry City’, food is no longer a subject reserved for experts. The publication ‘Food for the City’ goes a step further and presents 13 unique visions from across the world on the future of food in the city in the year 2050. In addition, a timeline from 2050 BCE to 2050 CE and a richly varied pictorial essay offer the reader an intriguing look at a subject that may be hip and hot now, but has in fact occupied people for millennia. The chef, the activist, the industrialist, the artist, the philosopher, the architect and the farmer, among others, offer their view of the future of food for the city.
