About This Book

Today, for the first time in history, more than half of the world's population lives in cities, and most of these cities are in Asia. The challenges presented by this phenomenon - population explosion, pollution, destruction of eco-systems, water shortages, sanitation, inhuman social environments - are addressed in this book by visionary architects, designers and planners. This book goes beyond architecture; it provides the facts and figures concerning the cities' expansion and the ecological implications of their enormous growth. The countries covered span the entire continent of Asia, from the glittering conurbations of the Dubai and Abu Dhabi to the vast metropolis of Seoul. With maps, diagrams and graphs and photographs.
