How do we make better cities – places that work for people of all ages and backgrounds? How do we make cities that provide the obvious essentials – great transport, good places to work – as well as the softer elements that truly deliver quality of life, from urban swimming pools to rooftop clubs?
In this new book the magazine’s editors unpack what makes a great city, whether you’re looking for a new place to call home or need help fixing your own. Discover how your city can have a High Line, create the most covetable housing or turn a dirty river into a summer asset.
Packed with great images and intriguing reports, this is a book that takes the urbanism debate away from city hall and explains what’s needed in ways that will inspire us all.
