Future cities   

The architecture of the future is expected to be sustainable, smart, and technology-integrated. It may incorporate:

  • Green buildings and sustainable design practices
  • Renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power
  • Automated systems for heating, cooling, and lighting
  • Use of 3D printing technology for construction
  • Smart building technology for improved energy efficiency and accessibility.

Cities have a crucial role in setting practices and policies to reduce human consumption of energy and resources, adapt to the impacts of climate change and improve people’s lives in urban areas.

Regardless of this variation, urbanization is set to increase to two-thirds of the global population by 2050, driven mostly by sharp increases in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. For example, across ten Southeast Asia countries, it is predicted by 2050 there will be 705 million urban residents – 205 million more than in 2014, and an increase from 47 to 65 per cent. 

To accommodate this growth, major cities will continue to expand but many small and medium-sized cities are also set to experience rapid growth.
