Future Cities - How to apply it successfully – combining technology, methodology and the human centric aspects
The city of the future is not simply smart. Digitalization and technological developments will leave their mark on urban development, but progress must be significantly broader than that. Technology should be used to support human goals. That’s why we, at AFRY, speak about Future Cities: we create value by focusing on and strengthening the soul and identity of a city to shape the livable Cities of the Future.
Shaping the City of the Future is complex and for a successful outcome a clear and sound consulting and engineering methodology together with hands-on experience is needed.
We present AFRY’s holistic approach, going from idea generation and value setting to implementation of practical solutions:
- Idea generation and value setting
- Definition of the action plan
- Citizen’s engagement
- Choice of the right technology solutions compliant with budget, goals and needs
- Inspiration by practical examples, in Switzerland and abroad, ranging from lighting to mobility, from AI to people having fun
Following the human centric approach will improve a sustainable quality of life. We take a step by step approach with each project with the awareness that vision without action is a daydream. And action without vision is a nightmare.
