Venice is a useful historical example of a planned city, born out of necessity, and one whose inhabitants were forced to invent new systems and structures to fit a unique set of environmental circumstances. As such, Venice can be a useful framework to consider the situation the modern world is currently facing in how to change existing cities and build new ones.

A once land-based rural population centered on agriculture became a floating civilization focused on trade access and the sea. Wooden pilings were driven deep into the bog bottoms, followed by stone. Primary locomotion and transport ceased to be horses and carts and became boats and barges of all sizes. Avenues became canals, crossed with strategic bridges.

Today, advanced materials, technology, and systems are being used to create new ways of living in large numbers in urban settings. The traditional method of growing cities, namely sprawl, will no longer do. This report is an overview of some of the tools available, and a look at what is coming next as we build cities that are connected, smart, and made in new ways, out of brand new materials.
