Over the last several years, an increasing number of reports have been published concerning the major changes that will affect people‘s coexistence and their habitat. The growing amount of autonomous vehicles, the substitution of jobs due to technological progress or the continuing climate change are just a few examples. At first glance, many of these topics are intimidating and leave behind a perplexity about their impact on the humane living environment. On closer inspection, chances and potentials for actively shaping a future worth living for will become apparent. This paper demonstrates that society has already undergone many transformations and that some conventions are based on very recent assumptions. Based on this finding, only a few of these normalities are actually unchangeable. For example, the abolition of the obligation to work by introducing an unconditional basic income could fundamentally change the everyday lives of people. Furthermore, autonomous transport has the potential for a positive future development by reducing traffic and thus freeing up urban areas for alternative uses. In the present work, these opportunities are addressed and put together to form a utopian way of life. The result is a collection of new planning paradigms for urban planning. Following this, we will address the question of the potential impact of this new form of human coexistence on European cities. Three places in Vienna were selected to show their transformation of future urban space in an exemplary way.
