    What will our future look like? We already know that it cannot be built in the continuity of our present, because the planet's resources are being depleted much faster than we are allowing them to regenerate. The visionary architect Luc Schuiten believes that we have perhaps forgotten too quickly that we are above all biological beings living on a planet that is itself alive. In response to this reflection, he imagines new living spaces, designed from the observation of vast ecosystems such as coral reefs or primary forests. Through different futuristic perspectives, evolving in time, a coherent and poetic world, appealing to the imagination, is gradually built. He suggests solutions for tomorrow's public and individual transport, proposes archiborescent habitats, and studies the future of the cities of Lyon, Strasbourg, Brussels, and Shanghai by 2100. These visions of a positive future are expressed through the creation of a new relationship between man and his natural environment. Luc Schuiten has chosen to communicate these original concepts through the pictorial mode of expression, because it is an effective way of bringing people instantly into his imagination. Through his lectures, he brings his drawings to life and opens a wide door to his futuristic visions. These original representations of a sustainable future are underpinned by the artist's close collaboration with the biologists of the Biomimicry Europa association.
