SUSTAINABLE URBANISM AND BEYOND : Rethinking Cities for the Future    

Tigran Haas - bokens redaktör - skriver i bokens förord följande:

This book, Sustainable Urbanism and Beyond: Rethinking
Cities for the Future, similarly started as being inspired by,
not the result of, the Council for European Urbanism and
Congress for New Urbanism Conference on Climate Change
and Urban Design held in Oslo, Norway, in September 2008.

Building on the ideas from its predecessor, the structure of the
current work assembles yet another collection of some of the
brightest urban minds of today. This is not an anticipatory
work, a book of dreams, or a nostrum for the future design
of cities and our communities. As noted in the preceding
book in the series, it is also valid here to make the final observation
that this is simply a solidly grounded collection of
ideas and thoughts on our urban condition and beyond written
by an exceptional group of individuals never assembled

It is a homogenous series of proactive lessons on how
the evolution of urbanism will alter the way we live, work,
build, and communicate in our cities, communities, and
neighborhoods—an unpretentious but coherent and balanced
set of essays with a vision of contemporary and future
urban form and its influence on everyday life patterns in our
“brave, new twenty-first-century world.”

Ett av kapitlen - Planning is Choosing, or should be - är skrivet av Torbjörn Einarsson Arken Arkitekter.
