The climate crisis and the post-pandemic period have really thrown up many challenges to our populations the world over. Thoughtless city expansion and weak planning have made our cities into locomotives of pollution and mental ill health. "Creating Compact Cities" is a strong innovative guide on how we can begin to fix things. It is perhaps destined to be one of the most influential books about urban design to come from Scandinavia.
The solution to our urban challenges is that cities should be designed in a more compact way. With increased density and enhanced liveability, details which increase security, well-being and privacy can be designed in. "Creating Compact Cities" illustrates how this can be achieved with examples from over 40 cities worldwide.
