Author | Jaime RamosThe global phenomenon of increased population density requires smart solutions, which only well-designed cities will be able to provide. In addition to this exponential population growth, is the challenge of large concentrations of inhabitants. One of the alternatives that has already emerged to increase the efficiency of urban spaces is co-living or shared houses.If we do the sums, there are currently 757 million people living in the 101 largest cities of the world. This is 11% of the global population. This figure is expected to rise to 23% by the end of the century. By 2100, the population of the Nigerian city of Lagos is expected to reach 88 million. We are talking about cities that are hard to imagine today and which will require major management skills in order to provide decent living conditions for their inhabitants.
