This century will, for the first time, see over half the world’s population living in cities. Making these urban structures environmentally and economically sustainable and liveable is one of today’s great challenges. This is why ETH Zurich will start with the “Future Cities Laboratory” programme in Zurich and Singapore. This new laboratory for sustainable urban development is the first research programme of Singapore ETH Centre (SEC).
In this project, the Future Cities Laboratory is collaborating closely with scientists from the National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University.
