Create the spaces of the future

No one can predict today how we will live in the future – not even us. What is absolutely certain is that unstoppable developments will significantly turn life as we know it today upside down. In 20 years’ time, self-driving vehicles will dominate the cityscape, drones will make up a large part of passenger and freight transport and artificial intelligence will fundamentally change the way we work. What motivates us, here at 7places, is the transformation of our living spaces in these times of disruptive change.

The average revenue of the smart city market in Germany is expected to increase by 17.1% to €84.7 billion euros by 2026.

At the heart of urban transformation is the digitization of various institutions and infrastructures. The aim is to make cities more livable and create space for new business models and lifestyles. Smart systems are shaping the cityscape and creating multifunctionality and networking. New types of cooperation enable contemporary action and more knowledge transfer. Shopping streets, squares with a high quality of stay and, for example, a well-developed public transport system play an important role here. This is emphasized by the DStGB in connection with a study by IFH Cologne. Appropriate concepts can make a visit to the city center a memorable experience in the future. A study conducted by the consultancy Arthur D. Little and the eco association explains that saving resources and increasing efficiency through the targeted use of innovative technologies in city centers contributes to climate protection. Smart buildings and smart homes can thus avoid up to 20% of energy demand in each case and increase sales accordingly.

Future Place
Future Place

Of the all the disruptive changes we are experiencing, our environments are still comparatively rarely mentioned today. This must change, because humans are going to need to open up completely new places – underground, in the water and in the air; in urban mega cities or in remote nature. Buildings have the potential to become living, networked, intelligent and changeable ecosystems. The 7th place as the future place stands for all these developments that today still seem like distant dreams of the future. Because we not only believe in this disruptive change and this future place, we also aspire to playing a significant and positive role in shaping it. For this, we have to start today to deal with the distant future as well.
