PSFK Labs explores artistic endeavors and considered redevelopment that are making the city landscape feel more vibrant and alluring.

There is a movement taking place in cities around the world which is remaining urban space not only as a place, but as a platform to grow and share ideas. In our Future Of Cities report, PSFK Labs investigated the key trends and pressing issues that will play a role in shaping the evolution of urban environments over the next decade.

A major theme identified in the report is called Urban Canvas, which looks at the ways artistic endeavors and considered redevelopment can make the city landscape feel more vibrant and alluring, while engaging citizens around shared experiences and conversations. This theme consists of six key trends: Derelict Revival, Infrastructure Reboot, Enhanced Facades, Culture Hacking, Landscape Narratives and Architectural Infographics.
