Atlas preview

Futures in Maps is an atlas that tell stories about a world we all might experience soon. Each map showcases the potential everyday consequences of global scale challenges such as climate change, labor automation, access to clean water and renewable energy production. See examples…

Maps are wonderful “boundary objects”. Objects that anybody from different perspectives or backgrounds can relate to and think with. The objective of this atlas is to provoke the imagination with the emergence of technologies, distinct customs, regulations, and social practices. But these maps that come from the future also warns us about unintended consequences, failures and debates that we can anticipate today.

This is an ongoing initiative. You can contribute to the atlas with your own map from the future.
