Rough Planet – Notterdam 2045

A tourist guide to Notterdam – an imagined coastal city in a decarbonised Europe circa 2045.

In a rare cross-over between my futures practice and that as a collage-artist, I was commissioned to create illustrative collages for the REINVENT project’s Rough Planet Guide to Notterdam.

The Rough Planet Guide declines to answer the question of “how do we make the decarbonisation transition happen?”, in favour of the question “how might we live in a successfully decarbonised Europe?” Thinking through the polyphony of the latter sheds new light on the former, not least because it makes it clear that there is more than one pathway to a post-fossil Europe.
