100 Visions

Du monde entier

Marco Beghin

President,
Moleskine America

New York City, United States

I envision a world where we have transcended the need for spatial limitations. Personal expression will ebb and flow with the rhythm of our lives and creation will be truly mobile.

Space for Human Architecture

How will people live and work 100 years from now?

What I love about this question is its magnitude, it allows us to be the architects of our future.

One hundred years from now, I envision a world where we have transcended the need for spatial limitations. Personal expression will ebb and flow with the rhythm of our lives, and creation will be truly mobile.

Inspiration may strike on a high-speed subway car, in the hyper-local produce section of a marketplace, or while running in a park. Our 22nd century contemporaries will carry the mediums of self-expression to capture these moments of clarity as we do today, but the way they create will be more organic and instantaneous.

Innovative mediums will allow us to move, imagine, dream and create instantly within the world around us. There will be no separation between creative work and play. The ability of our mediums to be infinitely accessible and mobile will teach us to see the world as an open canvas for our imagination and will empower us to create a more beautiful world.
