What is Urban Proxima?

Urban Proxima is about the ways technology changes (or soon could change) urban life. If you’re an urbanist, technologist, developer, architect, policy wonk, activist, or any other character class that cares about cities, this is for you. 

What Can I Expect?

Each newsletter, we’ll cover how new tech drives the evolution of our cities, the laws and regulations that influence urban growth, and the lives of real people as the future unfolds around us.
