At Placemeter, we talk a lot about “smart cities”. Often, big projects in big cities come to mind.
Paris is redesigning plazas for pedestrians. Dubai is putting LED-powered internet in its street lights. Amsterdam, a pioneer in the field, is developing an all-encompassing master plan called Structural Vision Amsterdam 2040. Yokohama, Japan’s Smart City Project, is forecasting energy usage. And New York City, our hometown, is consistently at the leading edge with exciting projects like Link NYC and Vision Zero.
