 5th March 2019 by gihan

By 2050, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in cities.
What will the city of the future look like?

Here are 10 things we’ll see in the not-too-distant future …

  1. Most buildings source their power from renewable energy sources.
  2. Vertical farming uses land efficiently to feed larger, more dense, populations.
  3. Self-driving (autonomous) vehicles are the norm.
  4. Demographic changes create demand for new housing options and infrastructure.
  5. Offices are replaced by more flexible workplaces – such as co-working hubs.
  6. New housing options and “smart” infrastructure help older people age in place.
  7. Cities learn how to better manage environmental issues such as air quality and waste disposal.
  8. Eating habits shift towards healthier, protein-rich diets – even new cuisine like insects!
  9. WiFi is reliable and ubiquitous – as good as water and electricity.
  10. The city adapts to its residents with smart lighting, traffic shaping, and greater personalisation.
