In the coming decades, the cities of the world will compete not only for technology, but primarily for human assets.
Only developers that focus on development of the urban environment and public space will be successful.
We live in 21st century and we must not just think of cities in physical terms, we also need to think of cities in the form of data and to look at it through the digital lens.
The reason why most cities have problems is the lack of integrated planning. In the new world cities will have planning, design methodologies, data and impact assessments, in other words, the ability to look forward through the data modelling.
The modern ‘smart’ city isn’t just about improving the quality of life, but also about a huge potential for business development – both small and medium-sized.
Our main task for today is to make sure that the creative class that is emerging in our cities remains there.
Overall, we are seeing an increase of urbanization across the world, and this urbanization shows that we are moving in cities where people not only live as individuals but also live in an eco-system of mobility and infrastructure that we need to move ahead.
When urbanizing a territory, a city cannot be made comfortable immediately for everyone living there – but you can find people who would relay your ideas.
