There is a growing interest around smart cities. How to go about planning, designing, building and managing such new cities remains a key challenge. The Future Design Center is a pilot project to be built at the Kashiwanoha Campus in Japan. With the backing of academia and industry heavyweights like SAP Japan, SHARP, Nikken Sekkei, HP Japan, and Mitsui Fudosan, the Future Design Center Incorporated Association aims to present a smart city model to Japan and the world.
