ESSENTIAL CITY is an amalgam of eight cities within the Coachella Valley and Morongo Basin, each with its own particular challenges. With the help of AI, we proffer an avant-garde visualisation of a resilient future for all who live there. Focussing on new building typologies and a rethink on density, we will examine certain eco-social problems facing these communities via a panel of international experts who work with sustainability, housing, urban design and hospitality every day. Gain an understanding of how passive design, zoning, green technology, and smart building systems contribute to sustainability. We will show how drawing on solutions from the past, reviewing new-urbanist principles and employing new technology can inspire future-proof solutions for the challenges that many desert cities face.
Join us to explore this futuristic metropolis that illustrates just how we can innovate towards beautiful, sustainable and inclusive cities that maximise their potential as well-rounded leisure, tourism and retirement destinations.
Designers, contributors and panelists: Don Albert (SOUND SPACE DESIGN), Ida Alwin (Desert Developments), Duane Smith (Hundred Mile House), Ankita Dwivedi (FirstPlanit), Sandro Fabris.
