Spatial Urban Futures: Complex Interiority is the first in a series of colloquia that outline (interior) urban futures in the context of the Greater Bay Area (GBA). Incorporating 11 cities into an urbanised population of well over 70 million people, planning for the GBA focuses on the development of key sectors and large scale infrastructural connectivity to position the region as a future global mega region. Integration raises complex issues: including the ‘One Country Two Systems,’ different languages and cultural bases, integration of infrastructure and logistics, regional duplication, redundancy and over capacity of many urban areas, not to mention issues of citizenship, public space and civic life. How do we plan for these issues, using what urban models and through which interior types? Does the development of large scale morphologies - such as we might find in Macau's casino complexes or in large multi-scalar cross-programmed developments – address these issues? Clearly the mega-block and interior complexes will be part of the GBA’s integration processes but what is their contribution to urban futures in the region?
