"The development of cities is subject to cycles, which are influenced by economic, social, ecological, and infrastructural parameters. The development of population density, the availability of infrastructures or the connection to larger networks are relevant determining factors for urban development. With a series of current challenges in the background, such as demographic change, international migration, worldwide economic developments as well as climate change and energy efficiency, it is time to rethink of the city of the future."
