By 2050, more than two thirds of the world’s population will be living in cities. But these are projected to be quite different from today. Crowned by green gardens, our new habitats will be more connected at every level, more focused on harmonizing what we do and consume, and more open to new lifestyles. They will be a more lived in but, with a little effort, also an even more livable place.
While rooftop greenhouses and vertical farming are blurring the distinction between the city and countryside, the sharing economy is turning urban spaces into collaborative platforms, where co-working and -living blend.
What makes collaboration easier is a new kind of city smarts: invisible digital connections, enhanced by technologies like 5G, that bind not just citizens but entire metropolises into an organic whole. On streets, in parking spots, under bridges, in buildings and sewer pipes, the future city will be pulsing with smart cables and devices that meter and orchestrate its life.
Circular, eco-friendly and open-minded
Bringing harmony to urban life cycles
Making cities greener won’t just be a way to grow urban agricultural products but also to foster a greater quality of life. Sustainable buildings will help to reduce impact on the environment, and adaptation of circular economy principles to urban contexts will extend the life cycles of materials and minimize waste.
In these novel surroundings, opportunities for new living concepts will be abundant. 3D-printed homes and drones facilitate life in the outskirts, while modular furniture and flexible renting schemes keep tighter urban spaces affordable.
