UDSOLGT FRA FORLAGET! Designing Sustainable Cities - Manageable Approaches to Make Urban Spaces Better

The potential of new designs

In view of the fact that, by 2050, 70% of the world’s population will live in cities, the subject of "sustainable urban design" is an important issue for UNESCO’s Cities of Design.

Taking into account that urban design can make a significant contribution to positive changes in environmental and social matters, the book presents seven inspirational examples for copying; included are analyses and measures for the cities of Detroit, Graz, Istanbul, Mexico City, and Puebla, as well as non-location bound projects.

The authors investigate the efficiency of certificates, climate installations for urban spaces, and new ecological, architectural, and sociological concepts for mega-cities. A reader for stakeholders at the interface of social and urban design.

  • Reader with seven up-to-date research contributions on social and urban design
  • Actual and hypothetical urban projects
  • Recommended as inspiration and for imitation
