The Human Sustainable City: Challenges and Perspectives from the Habitat Agenda

Luigi Fusco Girard, Bruno Forte, Maria Cerreta, Pasquale De Toro, Fabiana Forte

This title was first published in 2003. Seven years after Habitat II culminated with the Istanbul agreement on Sustainable Urban Development, this book brings together many of the world’s leading experts from the fields of architecture, urban planning, economics, sociology, politics, environment and geography to assess the successes and failures in fulfilling the objectives decided upon at this historic meeting. Illustrated with a wide range of case studies, this volume is divided into three main sections; firstly examining the challenges, secondly, the approaches, and finally, the practices. The book represents a critical appraisal not only of the issues related to urban development but also of the modalities to face these issues from real examples, these in return can be used as starting points to construct new ‘real utopias’ or at least, to future ‘best practices’.
