The director of Future Media, Ralph Rivera, currently heads it. BBC Future in collaboration with Terrform ONE presents the “Build Tomorrow” exhibit. This is a non-profit organization for architecture, urban, and ecological design philanthropists. The short-term public display invites the people of New York City to seize a preview of what the metropolitan could look like in the next few decades. “Building Tomorrow” Introduces the fundamental visions of New York City that demonstrate not only the enormous challenges we face, but also the opportunities that could become perceptible if we push the limits of what’s achievable.

The question this exhibit showcases is “what will cities look like as a result?” It makes the designers and citizens think what are new technologies that we can control to sustain growing populations. In effect how will people live, tour and function in the urban setting. The last production from Terreform was an attempt to answer some similar topics of “Build Tomorrow”.
