Method of speculation is a thought experiment that opens to view the complicated variables of the future urban fields, permits to imagine opportunities and come to terms with previously not experienced reality.

The true method of speculation is like the flight of an airplane. It starts from the ground of particular observation; it makes a flight in the thin air of imaginative generalization; and it again lands for renewed observation rendered acute by rational interpretation. (Whitehead, 1929, p. 5)
