How circular economy can transform our approach to buildings.
Cities are where the action is. More of us live in them than any time in history, they are hubs of innovation and play a crucial role in our democracy. On the other hand, they are also focal points for a lot of the world’s problems, such as greenhouse gas emissions, lack of access to services, poverty and inequalities. The Bloomberg Mayors Challenge was set up to help tackle some of these problems. It’s a $9million prize fund for US cities that can come up with the most visionary and impactful ideas that can enhance citizens’ lives. The city has to co-create these ideas with their citizens, working through prototyping stages alongside on-hand experts. With the competition winner announced during October 2018, this DIF Studio show will feature the people on the inside. We’ll hear about the ideas that were developed, the experiences people had, who won, and how.
