Technology and the Future of Cities: Opportunities and Recommendations


Diana L. Washington (Editor)

Series: Urban Development and Infrastructure
BISAC: SOC026030

Cities are beginning a new era of change. From 1920 to 2010 many U.S. cities “hollowed out” as suburbs grew faster than their urban cores. The trend started reversing in 2011 as Millennials and Baby Boomers looking for social connections and convenience settled in urban neighborhoods. Accompanying the resurgence of residential cities are complex and persistent urban challenges, including resilience against climate change and natural disasters. This book focuses on the technologies that shape some key infrastructures and economic activities, as opposed to those involved in delivering education, health care, or social services. It also outlines a vision and an approach agencies can use to move forward together in pursuing a vision of smart and connected communities. (Imprint: Nova)
