About This Book

These 20 papers by architects, designers, historians and planners drawn together in Asian Urban Lab offer forward-looking views of public space needs and usages in today's ever-developing Asia. They include ten case studies on: Singapore's Bukit Brown graveyards, the Railway Corridor, void decks and hawker centres; on carnivalism in Chongqing; public space policy in Hong Kong, in Jakarta, in the historical diversity of Kuala Lumpur and in relation to illegal architecture in Taiwan. Three commentaries on underlying political public issues follow. In the five papers in Part 2, doyen William Lim and others look at many necessities for future change and power rebalance in Asia and at spatial justice issues. With bibliography, black-and-white photographs, graphics and index.
