Bjarke Ingels Award-Thesen finden sich im Themenfeld „Energies of Resources – Eine Stadt des Überflusses“ wieder. Netzwerke, gespeist mit Daten zu Energiequellen, Verkehrsteilnehmern und Infrastruktur, könnten den Verkehrsfluss verbessern. Ein Energieüberschuss und freie, interaktiv nutzbare Flächen wären das Ergebnis. Können sich Auto und Gebäude also derselben flexiblen Energiespeicher bedienen, anstatt auf statische Versorgungssysteme angewiesen zu sein?

Auf Konzepten des sozialen Miteinanders basiert Alison Brooks Award-Entwurf, der die Grundlage des dritten Felds „Energies of Social Relations – Eine Stadt der Kooperation“ bildet. Geht man davon aus, dass die Stadt der Zukunft aus vielen heterogenen Bereichen besteht, wird sich das soziale Miteinander verstärken. Neue Formen nachbarschaftlicher Kooperation entstehen: Treten sozialer Austausch, gemeinsames Benutzen und Nachbarschaftshilfe daher in einigen Bereichen an die Stelle individuellen Besitzes?
