Cities of the Future

"By 2050, about three-quarters of the world's population will live in cities."

All the more reason to investigate the importance of green spaces in urban areas to help keep these future inhabitants as healthy as possible.

"To keep cities green is the challenge of future cities."

And we are prepared to contribute to this challenge!

Amazon Unveils Biophilic Workspace

Would you like to work in a place like this?

Amazon has unveiled its newest workplace that's all about the biophilia. The structure calls to mind the domed gardens at Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, but this is a place for brainstorming and meetings instead of tourism.

“We need to overcome this sense that you should just get out in nature once or twice a year on a holiday.”

We couldn't agree more.
