Tijs van den Boomen ; Eric Frijters ; Sandra van Assen ; Marco Broekman
The future of humanity is urban. We are facing major problems such as climate change, social inequality, large-scale migration, and resource depletion. Cities (and those who ‘make’ the city) play an important role in addressing these problems. In Urban Challenges, Resilient Solutions the ‘Future Urban Regions Lectorate’ offers designers, their commissioners and (local) governments new models and ideas to deal with healthy urban development. Illustrated by more than fifty case studies and global examples, this book offers a toolkit for those interested in implementing research by design and healthy urban regions.
