The Ecological City & the City Effect: Essays on the Urban Planning Requirements for the Sustainable City
In this book Franco Archibugi has gathered together his most recent experiences and a critical analysis of the great debate on the subject of the improvement of the urban environment and quality of life. This book comprises a critique of the current approaches to conventional urban policies which lack - according to the author - long-term vision and are limited to technological interventions for short-term improvement, without taking into consideration the conditions and constraints of town planning, which, if ignored, may lead to the rapid failure of such interventions.
