[VIDEO] The future of cities: What happens as more and more people move in?

COE in every country? To construct the city of tomorrow, this well-shot documentary brings together concepts and policies from around the world.

The human population isn’t going to stop growing – but containing growth and activity in hyper-dense cities will be the most sustainable and eco-friendly option for expansion. As the matchbox apartments pile on higher, what are the principles of design and policy that should be embraced by planners?

Film producer Oscar Boyson set out on a months-long journey to answer that question, during which time he travelled the globe and the internet to seek out contributing voices to that discussion. The result is The Future of Cities, a compact and engaging documentary, well worth its 18-minute runtime. Here’s the video.
