The cities of the future are being planned vertically. There will be buildings taller than 1,200 metres, corresponding to around 300 storeys. Up to 100,000 people will live in one building. The idea of the “vertical city” comes from architects Javier Pioz and Maria Rosa Cervera. Monitoring solutions with GPS networks from Leica Geosystems can help in the construction of high-rises in new dimensions.
