What will the smart city of tomorrow look like? Industry Perspectives: Creating Smart and Sustainable Cities is a new report and infographic published by the McGraw Hill Financial Global Institute and Autodesk that summarizes the insights of two generations of agriculture, engineering, and construction industry executives regarding the most important challenges and opportunities facing cities. The report determines that urban planners must embrace Building Information Modeling (BIM) and other innovative ways to build and fund projects, proactively recognize and quantify the future effects of climate change, and pursue infrastructure projects that abandon the old, safe “build to spec” model in favor of innovate, forward-thinking designs and policies.
