Nobody can predict how we will live in the future – neither can we. One thing is absolutely for sure: Unstoppable developments will turn the life we know upside down. In 20 years, autonomous vehicles will characterize the cityscape, drones will make up the majority of freight and passenger traffic and artificial intelligence will change almost every work mode we know. What moves us at 7places is the transformation of our living spaces in these times of change. Amongst all the disruptive changes, our surroundings are rarely mentioned. This has to change, as humans will have to exploit completely new habitats for themselves: The underground, the water, and the air; urban megacities just like remote nature. Buildings have the potential to evolve to living, connected, intelligent and convertible ecosystems. The 7th place stands for all these developments that seem like far-fetched future scenarios today. Because not only do we believe in disruptive change, we also claim to shape it in a significant, positive way. In order to achieve this, our engagement in the far off future has to start today.
