Rapid urbanization has led to many problems in cities, including climate change, deteriorating infrastructure, disorganized labor forces, and diminishing resources. This book presents a well-grounded vision for the kind of future city we need to live in by encapsulating the most salient and practical implementations of the many responsibilities and functions that characterize the modern metropolis.
