At a time when more than half of the world’s population is living in cities, the effects of climate change on urban life can no longer be ignored. The ex-hibition 'Post-Oil City: The History of the City’s Future,' as well as the ac-companying catalogue edited by ARCH+, present innovative projects in Asia, Africa, and America that address urgent questions: How will the tran-sition from fossil fuels to renewable energy affect the process of urban plan-ning and the city? How will the use of renewable energies affect urban me-tabolism and the politics of sustainability and mobility?

'Post-Oil City' is as much about the future as it is about the past. As indicat-ed by the exhibition’s subtitle – 'The History of the City’s Future' – every vi-sion of the future is based on a vision of the past. By contrasting 11 current projects in the field of sustainable urban planning with 9 from the past, the exhibition aims to show that many of today’s developments have their roots in the urban utopias of mid-20th-century modernism. Today, urban plan-ners are returning to these concepts and adapting them to the challenges posed by climate change, a limited supply of fossil fuels, economic recession, and global systemic crisis.
