Explore the Cities of the Future

Imagine stepping 50 years into the future. Smart cities are designed to optimize sustainability and resilience. Innovation and automation are everywhere. Renewable energy is a primary power source. Space-based solar power provides energy all day. And transport is easy with personal travel pods and drone deliveries. This isn’t science fiction. Engineers are making plans for this future world right now, and it’s coming to the giant screen! “Cities of the Future” brings Future World Vision concepts to life as today’s engineers work to solve the world’s most pressing challenges for tomorrow.

“The further out we look, the more itchanges our viewof the present.”

Welcome to Mega City

The year is 2070. The world is transformed, but the role of cities remains the same: to connect us and keep us safe and healthy so we can live, work, play, and learn. To build the future, first we must visualize it. Guided by extensive scenario planning and grounded in deep research, Future World Vision introduces a plausible city and its evolution from 2020 to 2070. The immersive, 3D digital model puts you at the heart of Mega City and invites you to contribute to the dynamic in-platform community.
