Question: What future awaits cities?
Answer: In the future, thanks to the development of communication technologies, humanity will not concentrate in big cities but will spread out.
Many people will be able to work from home and all their consumables will be delivered. The home will be a bedroom, a study room, and in general, a place where a person spends most of his life. The concepts of the “city center” and “downtown” will disappear from the world, and our cities will assume a broad and balanced form.
Besides, I very much hope that as soon as humanity realizes that its universal relations with each other should be altruistic, cities will also be reformed according to this new way: everything will be for the benefit of a person so that a person will care for society and society will care for everyone. This will lead to very big changes in city structures.
