Today, 55% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 68% by 2050. As the world continues to urbanise, understanding the key trends and identifying sustainable solutions remain crucial, with urban dwellers now increasingly well-travelled, design-savvy, digitally inclined and house-proud.
