by TKOAdmin

Recently launched at the ICE's London headquarters, The Future of Engineering (www.engineeringtv.org) is a comprehensive online hub that hosts a selection of exclusive, industry-related films, interviews and features.

As one of the sector's leading voices in urban design and analytics research, Aretian shares its insights and expertise in one of the initiative’s documentaries, entitled Putting the Smart into Cities.

The documentary (viewable at www.engineeringtv.org/putting-the-smart-into-cities) explores the ideas, innovations and individuals at the forefront of the development of sustainable, smart cities across the globe. Including commentary and analysis from a host of leading industry organisations,Putting the Smart into Cities addresses the present and future challenges of urban living, from transport and communications to the built environment, work and leisure.

The Future of Engineering also features a dedicated profile of Aretian and a film about its current ideas and operations, which can be found at www.engineeringtv.org/partners/aretian.

Ramon Gras, co-founder of Aretian, says: "Aretian's aspirations for the years to come are primarily to shape high-quality urban design and economic development projects tailored for the needs of citizens in different cities and metropolitan areas worldwide. What makes our offering unique within the industry is that we've been able to replicate – in a three-dimensional manner – the morphological features of cities, as well as the economic and human systems that inhabit them."

Addressing the smart city challenge, David Porter, vice president of the ICE, says: "The ICE’s vision for the future is really embodied in the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals, and we work very hard to try and support the delivery of those. We need to deliver all those SDGs in a way that helps people and the planet to thrive."
