Introduction

Mobility, a social life, education, diversity, excitement and services are things that attract people to cities. Our understanding is that they are essentially either compact or dispersed in form. Current trends in housing, healthcare, media, surveillance and communications are bound to create new behavioural patterns and fluxuating consumer choices that we can already see taking hold today- in pressures on school places, in transport modes, where people work and where people can afford to live.

BY 2029:

What influence will such demands/choices have on the soft infrastructure of our cities?

How will people forge the future of their cities through their own desires?

What difference will new technologies make?

Why do they matter?
