The Future is Blended
Trends in Co-living, Co-working & Student Accommodation
In cities around the world, shifts in lifestyles and habits are challenging the traditional housing preferences in which urbanites reside. As a result, entrepreneurs, designers, city planners, universities and developers are collaborating to create hybrid living typologies to adapt to more nomadic generations. ‘The Future is Blended’ will set the stage for multiple stakeholders to connect and exchange best practices to shape shared urban living models of the future.
At ‘The Future is Blended’, we’ll explore key trends in co-living, co-working and student accommodation. What are the possibilities for university-cities to have a head start in shaping the future of urban living? What are the key drivers behind the leading shared living projects in New York? How are established and new ways of living blending into each other? What makes an ‘urban campus’? Looking forward, what global innovations can influence the New York housing market?
