Discover ground-breaking global initiatives in urban design

Around the world, cities are at the fulcrum of a whole-scale re-imagining of how we work, travel and live. Global innovations from green buildings and public spaces to vertical living and sustainable architecture are driving our urban environments into a period of rapid and profound change.
