New style urban developments

New strategies are necessary to create sustainable and livable cities for the future. Traditionally urban developers look back and use results of the past for plans of the future. But urban developments take at least 5-10 years to realise. Therefore it is crucial that we look ahead in time to be able to create new, innovative and livable urban developements.
