Cutting Edge heads to Denver for fourth installment

Mining Engineering, 2015, Vol. 67, No. 12, pp. 171-0


PREVIEW:

In 2008, the world quietly hit a milestone that did not receive much fanfare or publicity, but one that marked a turning point in the history of mankind and the way the planet is, and will be inhabited in the future. It was in 2008 that, for the first time, more than half of the world’s population, an estimated 3.3 billion people, resided in urban areas. The world’s population had moved from being a majority of agricultural and rural society to an urban society. Andrew Whalley, deputy chairman for Grimshaw Architects, said this change in where and how people live will continue to increase urban populations and, by 2050, it is estimated that more than 6.4 billion people will live in urban areas. To meet these needs, Whalley, speaking during the keynote session of the 2105 Cutting Edge conference in Denver, CO, said future cities will have to be reimagined and redesigned to be more efficient. A large part of that design will be in the infrastructure of those cities.
