It’s estimated that by 2050, 70% of all human life will be concentrated in cities. Across the globe, every week, one million people move to an urban environment. Still, major cities around the world are contending with serious – and in some cases, crippling – issues surrounding transit, sustainable development, and allocation of resources. This three-part series explores the efforts being undertaken globally to bring the concept of the city into this increasingly fast-paced future, spotlighting visions for urban life seemingly plucked out of science-fiction but much closer to reality than we realize. From “smart cities” to the rise in urban farming, Cities of Tomorrow takes us on a mesmerizing tour of our future homes. (Photo: Vincent Callebaut Architectures)
