A thought provoking piece around city architecture and the integration of technology into our everyday environment.  Fascinating developments taking place with furniture hotspots the next big thing in development.  This will present greater challenges for planners and developers as consumer reliance on technology increases all the time.

We are seeing these challenges in our clients modern developments even now.  In commercial developments, digital signage options and moving tech signs are being considered.  Will they last? What if they break? Will tenants appreciate something they think is "free".  I can see the same issues cropping up for management companies in developments.  Local authorities don't want to take these items in charge so they become service chargeable.   or do they?  Will consumers, tenants, owners and service charge payers be happy to pay for infrastructure they "feel" ought to be free to air.
