Well-known Singapore architect and intellectual William Lim assesses present trends in Asian urbanism and past and present development policies in this collection of papers and articles. He provides wide and thoughtful perception of the sociological, ethical, environmental and professional factors involved. Many important issues are raised - land policies, pluralism in architecture, conservation and contemporary culture and above all, how these relate to basic human needs. Lim traces the course of his career, on which he bases his rationale behind accepting or rejecting contemporary architectural and philosophical theories. An intellectually demanding but stimulating volume.
