’’We are in the middle of a Tech Boom, which is rapidly changing our way of life in every single aspect possible. I’m part of Generation X. I can still remember a time before mobile phones and internet. It’s not hard to imagine that my grandchildren will probably fly to work, and by the time they actually do, they will probably hardly remember the time when vehicles ran on petrol or gas. Urban Planners & Architects have the challenging responsibility order to anticipate and facilitate this change in the planning and design of our cities. For Obermeyer it is therefore a priority to participate in summits like Leaders of Architecture, to share knowledge and thoughts in terms of the innovation and sustainability strategy required to prepare for the future.“
