Ben van Berkel, UNStudio and UNSense
What does the city of the future look like? How can we design healthy and human-centric environments for densifying cities? According to Ben van Berkel, the digital revolution has brought about many changes to our lives, yet not to the built environment. It is time that we use technology to make our environments more human-centric and healthier. Van Berkel presents a number of scenarios that outline how developments in high-rise and mobility could change our urban regions.
