Thinking tonight about how to marry EbM with such ideas

I spend a lot of time thinking about the future of the city, and about the rural/urban divide. Barring catastrophe, humans are likely to continue amassing in larger and larger conurbations - megacities. The commonly dystopian view of these future communities need not come true. How to imagine a megacity, however, that isn't dystopic, is a challenge. Imagining one that isn't even more philosophically divided from the smaller communities that remain outside their pull than ours are today, is perhaps even harder.
This year's Wolfson Prize revisits a response to this issue that arose last century, the garden city.
