As more and more people live in cities, consider how we can adapt architecture and urban design to the changing needs of all life forms.

Future Cities

As the human population keeps populating this planet and its cities, consider how architecture and urban design can create carbon-neutral and nature-friendly solutions. How do we create buildings, cities and spaces that include the needs of nature as well as humans?
