This map was created by the Imperial Tech Foresight team to stimulate discussions about the future of air, particularly in major cities.

Together, the creators examined the effects of urban air on the experience of city dwellers and explored the ways that these could change with the introduction of future technologies and social interventions. The map represents a unique collaboration between researchers, futurists and the Tech Foresight team.

Concept development by Richard Watson, Maria Jeansson and Dr Graciela Sainz de la Fuente with invaluable academic input from Dr Audrey de Nazelle, Dr Marc Stettler, Prof Washington Y Ocheng, Dr Huw Woodward, Dr Greg Jackson, Dr Chris Mazur and Dr David Boyle.
