The Urban Challenge
By 2050, two thirds of the world’s population, approximately 7 billion people, will live in cities. This massive global urbanization presents a major challenge to the way we design, build and think of urban environments in the future. BLOXHUB is designed to meet this challenge.
Torben Klitgaard, BLOXHUB Director:
“By bridging architecture, design, construction and digitalization, we can unlock the full potential of cities as engines for growth and development and as places where people want to live. A stronger collaboration across sectors is crucial to creating better cities.”
