“It is now widely expected that the world’s population growth will dramatically slow throughout the rest of this century, and almost everyone will be living in cities. Cities will be characterized largely by migration rather than natural growth, and this mixing will change their complexion quite radically.”
– Michael Batty, Bartlett Professor of Planning at University College London –

Over the next 75 years, urban areas will continue concentrating population, wealth and mobile knowledge-workers. Professor Batty has his finger on the pulse of this shift and his recently published book “Inventing Future Cities” examines the issue in depth.
