Smart CitiesMar, 2017
The phrase “smart city” turns 25 this year, but what does “smart” really mean for cities? The Smart Cities special report, published in The Times, unpicks what the future city will look like, as well as the current market for smart solutions. The report covers the latest technology helping to solve urban issues, Latin America’s first smart city and how personal data can be used to improve citizens’ lives. In addition, it includes a pull-out annotated blueprint of the Shanghai Tower, one of the world’s most cutting-edge sustainable buildings
The $2.4-billion, Gensler-designed, mixed-use Shanghai Tower is not only China’s tallest building but the second-tallest in the world, standing at 632 metres high (2,073 feet). The 127-storey spiraling highrise combines cutting-edge sustainable strategies with both private and public spaces.
