                  can determine if we can keep on going…

                                       What is on the horizon?




                                       The Future



September 29, 2008 – UTCM Colloquium                                                        12
                                                  Vanegas/College of Architecture/TAMU

                          And, how do you anticipate the
                                       Future?



                                             I have
                                            no idea...


September 29, 2008 – UTCM Colloquium                                             13
                                       Vanegas/College of Architecture/TAMU




      All I know is that the Future
   arrives every second as today’s reality,
    and it does not have “Stop,” “Pause,”
    “Rewind,” “Fast Forward,” “Eject,”
       “Mute,” or “Reset” buttons….




September 29, 2008 – UTCM Colloquium                                  14
                                       Vanegas/College of Architecture/TAMU




        And the choices we have are simple:
    • Are we going to contribute to make the
      Future we want happen…?
    • Are we going to just wait and see
      what Future will happen…?
    • Or, when the Future arrives, are we going
         to ask whathappened…?
    • Or, are we just going to say “huh,
      something happened?”

                                                   Vanegas/College of Architecture/TAMU




            And if we choose the first option, and
          attempt to make the Future we want
            happen, we need to be aware of the
            opportunities that we have through
                                       Research…

                                       Vanegas/College of Architecture/TAMU




         And from the College of Architecture’s
          perspective, one of the fundamental
         questions driving our research agenda:

                What if the providers and
                   custodians of the
                 Built Environment…

        Finally, what we do in CARC
      requires an understanding of the
           attributes of the units of
     development at different scales, of
      the dynamics of the relationships
        and interdependencies among
           them, and new levels of
     communication, coordination, and
                 integration…
