The world is undergoing rapid change, but not in all spheres. The fastest changes are happening in technology, while infrastructure and architecture are lagging way behind. In Russia at least, the process is extremely uneven. In select areas, yes, but not across the board. 2050 is by no means the distant future, and if sufficient effort is not invested, nothing fundamental will change. It’s all up to us! Foreign and Russian investors are keen to develop the coastal region and urban area of Vladivostok with an eye on its promising location, natural resources, and scientific potential. One of the city's biggest problems is traffic congestion and lack of public transport. The hilly terrain, narrow roads, and aging infrastructure seriously hinder moving around the city. Building bridges partly solved—yet also worsened—the problem. A possible solution could be the construction of several underwater tunnels and another couple of bridges in the coastal part of the city. The result would be fewer bottlenecks and more efficient and speedier traffic flows. The underwater tunnels will help achieve even better traffic distribution and reduce the number of vehicles crossing the bridge. And as an alternative, in certain places (for example, towers, buildings, or hills) we’ll make high-speed trolley runs for moving quickly from one side of the bay to the another, and travel around the city. After all, the cityscape is tiered. And it's fun with a breeze at your back. It's safe, like a rope bridge, but easier and cheaper. As in the rest of the world, alternative, environmentally friendly energy sources will continue to be developed, resulting in the gradual introduction of hybrid cars able to run not only on gasoline, but other types of fuel as well. Besides electricity, they could include hydrogen, bio-diesel based on vegetable oils, liquefied gas, and even air. And in the coastal region, another option is seaweed. It’s generally a good idea to use different types of fuel within one region so as to stimulate market competition. All these technologies are not make-believe, but a foreseeable alternative to declining global oil reserves, followed by the total abandonment of black gold. It is planned to create a cluster here to study the ocean and sea, including marine organisms. This region also holds great prospects for ocean purification, among other things. That selfsame seaweed can be used not only as fuel for cars, but as a general source of energy. Special complexes will be connected to an ecological energy network of underground pipes. Dumps of organic debris will be transformed into parks and squares. Organic matter is a great fertilizer! Vladivostok will gradually come to represent a symbiosis of nature and culture, which, although not new in itself, in a coastal context will look sharp and progressive, and create universal benefits. The most important thing is to use the funds for their intended purpose and not to focus solely on oneself, but on others and the world around. Otherwise, the longed-for bright future will not materialize.
