ISSUE 05: SMART & LIVABLE CITIES
Articulating a livable vision for city life 

Cities are the future. Our world is urbanizing rapidly.

The rising demand for city life creates opportunities for new investment and innovation across the built environment, but also brings to light challenges in these invigorated urban places―affordability, congestion, transport and equity to name a few. Meanwhile, the possibilities of a connected, data-rich, “smart” community are beginning to reveal themselves.

In this issue we ask ourselves how will smart cities approaches influence the design of our future cities? What do we know and what we can’t yet predict about the impact of smart cities? As we explore the potential of technology enhanced living, we must keep in mind that technology is just a means to an end, and that livability is our ultimate goal. Human-centered communities drive healthy, engaged and sustainable communities, whether urban or suburban.
