Drivers of Change

Riding the rapids

What is driving change in British cities? How can we begin to understand and respond to complex and overlapping drivers of change? Are our current operating systems and infrastructure prepared for the challenges that lie ahead?

Building Futures has commissioned Charles Landry of Comedia to explore the dynamics of change that will have a significant impact on British cities over the next 20 years. The resulting publication, Riding the rapids: urban life in an age of complexity, reviews a number of themes which are seen to be shaping our future urban environment and sets a robust conceptual framework in order to facilitate an understanding of the nature of unfolding change in cities.
