As usual I like to do some reflections on the coming year. It is always strange to connect the kind of trends to one year, the value of predictions is more to track systematic changes, forcing yourself to mark the year is a nice exercise though. I am often asked to share thoughts on future developments through the year. Last week a piece was published on the drivers for mobility in Emerce (in Dutch). And earlier last year I did so as part of a research group of Dutch Associations of Architects, where we tried to look into the future of the city in 2040 and beyond. Longterm concepts as ‘Living as a service’, ‘Assisted/Boosted human’, ‘Code/space’.
