Abstract

Human migration to urban centres is at an unprecedented level, prompting searching questions about their design and enablement, politically, economically, technologically, or socially. Rapid urban development is laying challenge to existing paradigms, and demanding fresh thinking and radical new models. Historic ideas founded on ideals are increasingly outmoded, yet optimism about the potential for future betterment must remain, particularly within the architectural profession.
