At FutureStructure we believe that cities will be the proving ground for innovative infrastructure development. By 2050 more than 70 percent of the global population will live in cities. This will mark a fundamental shift in human civilization. It also means it is critical for city and regional governments to invest now in sustainability and resiliency. Doing that means taking a hard look at our cities’ water, waste and energy systems.
