Innovations in smart city technologies, architecture, real estate and construction for liveable cities of the future.
"Cities have always been the fireplaces of civilization,
whence light and heat radiated out into the dark."
- Theodore Parker
While great cities have shaped our civilizations over the millennia, they also took an enormous amount of resources, both natural and human.
Globalization has generated significant benefits to society, raising the living standards of billions and lifting millions out of poverty. But they have also exacerbated inequalities in our societies. The rapid growth puts pressure on city infrastructure, making it harder to maintain citizen quality of life, and it requires a greater need to manage carbon footprint and improve sustainability. This requires a fresh look at how we design and build residential, commercial, and logistics structures and how we source the resources needed to make them happen.
Through our programs, we invest with our partners in startups that have innovative and scalable solutions in smart city, construction, architecture, and real estate domains.
