Future Cities & Planning

Technologies are rapidly changing and communities' behaviours shift in response. We don't know what our cities will look like in the future - but we can study people's motivations, cultures, deep-held beliefs and habits. They give us the knowledge to design the future such that it serves people.

The future of cities is built upon better understanding and involving users.
