Spark City 2040

Our perspective on the city of the future
By 2050 more than two thirds of the global population will live in urban areas. This trend will consolidate cities as the main location of innovation, where ideas will form and economic growth springs up. Through our academic research, work with municipalities, governments and smart city laboratories, and from our offices in Zürich and London, we have identified a number of trends that will disrupt industry, inspire the development of new services, and shape our urban lifestyles in the decades to come. New ways of moving around will impact infrastructures, lifestyles and economic activities. Public services will create opportunities of public-private collaboration and higher quality of living. Financial services will be invisible and seamlessly integrated into our everyday lives.
