    This paper discusses ways of looking at the future, with particular emphasis on the future as a ‘conscious dream’, and discusses an approach by which conscious dreams can be represented as explicit models. A case study is given of the use of this method with three housing managers who were enabled by it to articulate their own images of the future and understand each others' images. The benefits to be gained from such a procedure are discussed.
