Book Description:

'Each of the chapters in this volume provide "lenses" to view the challenges of compact and dense cities. How does one build to high density and raise standards of public health and safety and well-being? This book is replete with insights and provocations that set forth a new horizon for urban design research and practice and thus provides a hopeful vision for a resilient future.'

'This book tackles one of the most important challenges that shape future cities: Contextualising urban densities in the face of climate change. The book provides wide discussion; looking at possible urban densities that would guide future configuration of our cities.'
