Summary Leading analysts of all the major resource domains -- water, food, material, energy and finance -- are all telling us that our global industrial growth models, driven by speculation on unstable financial markets, are taking the planet to the brink of chronic scarcity. In architecture, concerns about depleting material and energy sources have largely been centered on the more emollient category of 'sustainability'. In the next decade, however, as the situation becomes more pressing, architects and designers will need to confront the reality of scarcity. There are many ways that architecture, urban planning and design research can tackle such issues: from developing new forms of analysis of global flows and scarcities, to specific local and global design-based solutions
