Current societal and sustainable developments invariably provide food for thought on how we perceive our built environment. This built environment includes land, air, water, transportation, communications and a logistics network – aimed at optimizing the effectiveness of land use and infrastructure. Issues like climate change, a rapidly-growing population and a serious housing shortage have been around for decades, but nowadays they are more on the agenda than ever before. Dilemmas of this nature require incisive thinking and innovative technologies to constantly adapt and upgrade the city of today to make it ready for the demands of tomorrow.
