Municipalities share a common challenge: meeting the demands of continually evolving citizen expectations. Driven by the accelerating pace of modern life, citizens expect digital services that are user-friendly, responsive and adapt to their needs. Services have to be instantly accessible when and where citizens need them. But how will be these expectations can be met?
Future infrastructure will need to be better planned and coordinated and will need to rely on improved modelling of future demand and long-term weather and environmental changes. Society will come more and more to demand intelligent infrastructure which makes the most of energy generation and distribution, makes buildings smarter and keeps traffic flowing. We believe that this is likely to improve with increased usage of smart systems using feedback data loops which provide evidence for informed decision-making and better data on which to base projections. What do you think of future roads and infrastructure?
Public parks as essential elements of natural capital. From improving health, wellbeing and social cohesion to actively cooling cities by up to 0.5 degrees Celsius. As the environment changes and the urban landscape evolves, so to must the design of the parks of the future. These urban landscapes will be as dynamic and diverse as their residents, wherever they may be. What do you think of future parks?
Ideas will be reviewed, evaluated, choose the best one of each field and recognize their owners.
