Description :

Language: N/A. Brand New Book. Asian cities are developing at an unparalleled pace, fuelled by the rise in urban population and economic development. With development focused on the production and output of commercial industries, the growth of many cities has overlooked disadvantaged citizens, who remain disconnected to basic amenities, transport services and economic opportunities. The aim of the Vertical Cities Asia International Design Competition and Symposium is to encourage design explorations and research into new urban models for urban environments in Asian cities challenged by the task of providing infrastructural services for all citizens. Previous editions of the VCA, Everyone Needs Fresh Air (Chengdu, 2011), Everyone Ages (Seoul, 2012) and Everyone Harvests (Hanoi, 2013), focused on providing urban planning methods to address key environmental and social issues faced by developing cities. The fourth edition (Mumbai, 2014) is themed Everyone Connects and investigates potential solutions to the metropolitan fragmentation and the dispersal of informal settlements throughout cities, and the exclusion of certain members of the populace from economic opportunities and social activities. The solutions include designing and encouraging communal and economic links, revelling in the sense of community and the intimate culture of Mumbai. The theme calls for innovative structural methods that provide significant allowance for citizens to interact with the built environment, to stem the sense of separation from the city. This book presents the wide spectrum of innovative design and theoretical approaches discussed in the competition teams schemes and symposium papers. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : Asian cities are developing at an unparalleled pace, fuelled by the rise in urban population and economic development. With development focused on the production and output of commercial industries, the growth of many cities has overlooked disadvantaged citizens, who remain disconnected to basic amenities, transport services and economic opportunities.

The aim of the Vertical Cities Asia International Design Competition and Symposium is to encourage design explorations and research into new urban models for urban environments in Asian cities challenged by the task of providing infrastructural services for all citizens. Previous editions of the VCA, ?Everyone Needs Fresh Air? (Chengdu, 2011), ?Everyone Ages? (Seoul, 2012) and ?Everyone Harvests? (Hanoi, 2013), focused on providing urban planning methods to address key environmental and social issues faced by developing cities.

The fourth edition (Mumbai, 2014) is themed ?Everyone Connects? and investigates potential solutions to the metropolitan fragmentation and the dispersal of informal settlements throughout cities, and the exclusion of certain members of the populace from economic opportunities and social activities. The solutions include designing and encouraging communal and economic links, revelling in the sense of community and the intimate culture of Mumbai. The theme calls for innovative structural methods that provide significant allowance for citizens to interact with the built environment, to stem the sense of separation from the city. This book presents the wide spectrum of innovative design and theoretical approaches discussed in the competition teams? schemes and symposium papers.
