CORP 2019 proposes to explore whether the future of cities will lie in complete standardisation through technological innovation or whether the quest by people for uniqueness and peculiarity can prevail. The questions addressed in this paper is whether cities will converge into ubiquitous, remotely controlled sameness or preserve their identities embedded in the emotions of those who live, work, play and learn there; or whether there may be another way, somewhere in between these extremes, a means to combining their best features and attenuating their flaws.
