Description

Urban Utopias – Past, Present, and Future
With more than half of the human population now living in cities, our way of living continuously changes as ever more people, goods, and data circulate within sprawling metropolitan grids. This October FvF and MINI Germany’s joint initiative The Sooner Now returns to Berlin to examine urban utopias then and now. Together with an eclectic cast of innovators—architects, designers, technologists, journalists, policy makers—we share inspiring ideas in a day-long program of dialogue, experiment, and play.


The Sooner Now – Sharing Ideas for a Life in the City
The Sooner Now is a joint initiative by FvF and MINI Germany founded in 2016 to foster conversations about urban living and urban futures. Focused on innovative ideas and thoughtful interventions at all scales, The Sooner Now brings together creatives across all disciplines, raises awareness around urban challenges and generates visibility for projects and the people who tackle them. This year, the initiative is supported by the urban design magazine IDEAT.
