Urbanization and digitalization are transforming the way we live, work and commute in cities. The Flow of Urban Life is a podcast by KONE that explores how we can innovate to improve urban flow and create smarter, more sustainable cities of tomorrow.
The next time you leave your house, head to the office, drop your kids off at school or go to the supermarket, ask yourself, do your surroundings help or hinder your day?
Everything in our cities has been designed by someone for someone. The question is, has it been designed for you?
Smart and Sustainable Cities
Now more than ever, data and smart technology is informing the way we live, work and build. Our capacity to imagine and create better connected, more resilient future cities is rapidly improving. But what does this mean in practice? In this episode, two experts look at answers to these questions and offer unique perspectives on future iterations of the built environment:
Tessina Czerwinski, Program Director for Smart and Sustainable Cities at KONE
Greg Lindsay, futurist, journalist and senior fellow at MIT's Future Urban Collectives Lab and partner at Futuremap
Reimagining the Office
Sam Hughes uncovers how the future office will transform our physical spaces, how we interact with our colleagues, and the type of work we do. We hear from Torben Østergaard, Architect and Partner at 3XN, Mahwesh Khan, Research Associate at IMD, and Etti Seppä, Business Design Expert at KONE.
Connected Cities: Predicted Trends
Sam Hughes is joined by Anders Sörman-Nilsson, a leading futurist and the founder of the think tank Thinque, to discuss how innovations in the digital world could transform our physical spaces.
Connected Cities: The Robot Helper
Services play a key role in making our cities pleasant, productive and healthy places to be. Innovations such as on-demand delivery robots and autonomous vehicles could help us live more sustainably while providing services that offer real value to residents. This episode explores how robots can have a positive impact on our lives.
Connected Cities: Inclusive Technology
More than 4.2 billion of us live and work in cities every day. Some of us need specific accommodations for disabilities, whether in a digital world or the real world. Now, as urban populations continue to grow, many cities are turning to technology to create smarter, more liveable environments for all. Join us as we talk to some of the people at the forefront of inclusive urban innovation.
