FutureStructure is a new framework for thinking through and solving challenges faced in building economically and socially robust communities; its aim is to overcome the constraints inherent in haphazard and siloed approaches communities often take when conceiving, investing in and building their future.

This new approach to 21st century city- and community-building consists of:

  • cities as systems that are connected, well integrated and smarter -- with greater responsiveness to community needs;
  • smart, connected and integrated infrastructure that makes more efficient use of resources and improves the quality of life for the people who use it; 
  • new job skills that will be needed to develop, build, deploy and operate these connected systems
Take a look at our infographic below, which further details what FutureStructure is, what it consists of and the factors that drive it.
