‘We live in a time of rapid transition and disruption – our cities are at the heart of much of this change. Many of our urban spaces are only just withstanding the strain of our increased population and modern lifestyle.
‘As we focus attention and commit significant investment to ‘Smart Cities’ it is important to share global resilience, sustainability and accessibility lessons. This way we can design urban spaces that are dynamic and responsive to community, technological and environmental needs.
