The flexible city: facing the challenges of the next fifty years and beyond

About Us

Our understanding of the urban, whether in theory or practice, stands at a turning point. Cities over the world face complex and rapidly evolving challenges. Addressing them requires ingenuity and versatility, whether in policymaking, investment decisions or everyday livelihoods.
The Oxford Programme for the Future of Cities seeks to re-think the city, in theory and practice, as a flexible and evolving space that better responds to contemporary urban challenges.
