Today's architects are imagining the cities of the future as building styles fall in and out of fashion and construction materials evolve. As urban centers get more crowded and polluted, a number of forward-thinking designers are responding with concepts for self-contained super cities that reach up instead of out -- sometimes up to 2.5 miles high. The resulting designs incorporate renewable energy, indoor farms and living space for thousands of people, with the idea that self-sustaining and self-contained communities can exist outside the constraints of climate change without contributing to it further.
