Why World Cities?
With more than half of all humanity condensed into an area just over two percent of the planet’s land cover, the development of urban infrastructure has become one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. As mankind makes a mad dash for the city, demands on urban infrastructure continue to reach unprecedented levels. Existing urban infrastructure is in urgent need of revitalization, and demands for new infrastructure have skyrocketed to meet the basic needs of growing populations.
Infrastructure100: World Cities Edition
The aim of this publication is to showcase and celebrate one hundred examples of innovative and inspiring projects in cities around the world. We hope that the Infrastructure100: World Cities Edition will make industry professionals proud of the work they do and, for those less familiar with the world of infrastructure, it will inform and inspire.
While this is not an “awards” publication, we have partnered with a distinguished group of independent industry experts who helped select 100 projects from the many hundreds that were nominated. These judges also debated which projects to showcase for each sector in the final publication.
We encourage you to join us in celebrating the infrastructure projects that make great cities – places where people want to live and do business.
