There is little doubt that the twenty-first century will continue to bring much change to our cities and neighborhoods.

The annual population growth, moving from rural to urban locations, is therefore projected to grow at an average rate of 43 million people per year. The majority of this population is wired and connected to the internet.
The new urban paradigm is no longer about shopping malls, downtown office cubicles, narrowly defined housing, but rather focused on “experience based” living and integrated, compact and walkable environments.
