12 - 10. CONFLICTS

London has built a 3-story zero-energy house to demonstrate how you can build sustainable for the future. When EXPO closes on October 31 it will be torn down. Then the Chinese property-developers move in and erect high-rises with luxury flats. EXPO is full of nice words, good intentions and technical solutions. And silence about the big conflicts that shape our future. The fine, little pavilion of Sao Paulo is the only one - of the ones that I have visited - that mentions conflict. The mega-city has after struggle introduced a "Clean City Law" that prohibits advertising in public space.
