The GOOD Cities Project

We create the cities we love, and the cities we love create us.

As an urban center continues to grow and expand, so does its base of foreign-born residents. The rich and ever-evolving tapestry of multinational identities brings great benefit to the cultural, social, and economic fabric of a city. The dance of diverse populations brings new perspective and vibrancy to the makeup of an urban center; it gives the city character and depth. From Tokyo's modest 1.7% of foreign-born residents, to Dubai's whopping 87%, in this infographic we take a look at the dynamic landscape of city demographics around the world.

The GOOD Cities Project is a five-month collaboration with Ford, exploring how we make our cities and how our cities make us. As part of the project, GOOD and Ford have commissioned cultural creatives across the country to help illuminate and celebrate the rich and vastly diverse points of view that make up each city's individual character. Each week, we will be exploring attributes that we believe are fundamental to living meaningful urban lives.
