We're experts on the urban future.

Right now we're focused on automated mobility.

Our New Book Explores the Driverless Future

For decades we have tried to build a car that will drive itself. Anthony M. Townsend’s Ghost Road argues convincingly that the driverless car is a red herring. When self-driving technology infects buses, bikes, delivery vans, and even buildings, a wild, woollier, future awaits.

A Journey On the Ghost Road

Google’s self-driving car project turns ten this year, but we’re as far away from a driverless future as ever. Or so it seems.

We also do deep dives on urban data.

Making Sense of Urban Science

We're always working on the planning and economic development aspects of innovation.

And we think a lot about resilience and other emerging urbanism frameworks.
