When we chatted with Ayesha Khanna, Director of the Hybrid Reality Institute, a research and advisory group that focuses on human-technology co-evolution, geotechnology and innovation, for our Need To Know Magazine she shared with PSFK her thoughts on the future of urbanization.
In the future, cities will be judged by their generativity.
Over seventy percent of the world’s population, and almost all of the globe’s skilled talent, will live in cities by the year 2050.
