What comes to mind when you imagine cities of the future? Dystopia or Utopia? A bleak and dark environment, like Blade Runner’s Los Angeles? Or the fabulous, connected San Francisco of Star Trek and Bicentennial Man?
Nearly half of the world’s population lives in a city, so it’s a critical that we figure out how to shape the best possible environment.
