Do advanced cities need a vision and projection?

  • Advanced cities need a strategy to be the inspiration of the future but urban planning needs to be a fluid exercise, a “winding guide” implementation. The strategies need to have an adaptive DNA, if not they will not survive in dynamic market or disruptive environments.
  • Whatever form a transition it might take, being an advanced city implies finding the institutional arrangements to stimulate the kinds of innovation that solve rather than augment our environmental and social challenges.
