Ideas for the city of tomorrow

Real Estate and the Changing Society: Ideas for the city of tomorrow

Ingrid Nappi-Choulet, Professor, Public and Private Policy Department, Chaired Professor of the Real Estate and Sustainable Development Chair at ESSEC Business School, shares her work on the city of the 21st century.

The rise of mobility, the digital revolution, new ways of working, new consumer habits, cultural practices, an ageing population, the demand for flexibility in the world of work… all these social and cultural mutations are factors for change in our relation to space – and built-up space in particular.

Interviewing twenty experts from academia and the world of real estate, Ingrid Nappi-Choulet brings together their ideas and insights into how the housing, offices, and warehouses of tomorrow should be designed today. Moreover, how is the nature of these buildings brought into question by new forms of hybrid buildings? And as environmental constraints grow increasingly stringent, what innovations today point to reflection on the city of tomorrow?
