Glo-cal Visions of Human Habitation for 2100 and their defining Cultural Paradigms
Phillip’s Doctoral research explored city visions and their underlying cultural paradigms. By applying foresight methods and socio-cultural change studies to the challenge of city planning and design, he developed a holistic policy framework for city development and a multi-dimensional city change model. Both policy tools give communities greater capacities to create humane and sustainable urban futures that they imagine.
