'We are living in a time where technology is invisible and no one seems to be in control. To help us understand this world, we need to redefine the map of the world; a mental construct reinterpreted countless times since 1492. We could read the world anno 2020 as a collective living space for everyone, with individual cities functioning as neighbourhoods, each with their own regional identity. These cities will be comparable to stops on a subway map, and the new commute will differ drastically from that of today. In just a few years, we’ll be able to fly to any city in only a few hours. And in this way, the world becomes our new metropolis.'
