More urban areas will be constructed during first three decades of this century than all of history, placing enormous pressure on politicians, planners and architects.

The reality of the urban condition, instead, reveals that in many parts of the world urbanisation has become more spatially fragmented, less environmentally responsive and more socially divisive.
