Cities are done. The office is dead. Delivery is the future. At least two of these statements are wrong – but why? COVID-19 will eventually be tamed, but work-from-anywhere is here to stay. That doesn’t mean the end of the office, but whole new ways of working closer to home – with more fluid organizations to match. And that, in turn, means rethinking who and what cities are for – forget downtowns vs. suburbs and imagine a life more local, with everything you need at home or only a few minutes’ walk, cycle, or drive away. Behind the scenes, technology is turning restaurants and retail inside-out through deliveries, “dark stores” and automation – threatening main streets, mom-and-pops, and real estate as we know it. Drawing on his research and foresight work for NewCities, the Atlantic Council, MIT’s Future Urban Collectives Lab, and months of post-pandemic research, Greg Lindsay explodes the myths around COVID-19 and explains why the future isn’t as socially-distanced as you might think.
