We have seen in recent years how innovative smart technologies are making buildings more productive, healthy and efficient, and how they can help us to save natural resources. Yet, most of these technologies do not visibly appear to be part of the architectural scenarios we apply in our designs.

The question we should now discuss is how radical innovations in the fields of life sciences, mobility, material technology, communication and machine intelligence can help to enhance the experiential quality of our built environment. How will the blurring lines between the physical, digital and biological spheres make rapidly expanding cities around the world wonderful, happy and equitable places to live and work – for ours and for future generations.
