    City Futures book. Read 2 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Cities are the future. In the past two decades, a global urban revoluti 3/5. Urban Design Futures presents essays from an international cast of authors to review progress and explore emerging ideas: should urban design reflect the future rather than recreate the past? What are the new driving forces that will shape urban living and hence urban design in the future? This is a book covering the richness of the urban.

    I read Wendell Bell’s book a couple of years ago and have been considering ever since how the varied (and yet interrelated) studies of urban futures and complexity optimise our approach to understanding urban systems and ensure more effective planning . Global Urban Futures is a learning network of scholars and activists who are changing the conversation about urban policy. GUFP highlights the major challenges facing cities around the world; rising inequality, uneven growth and climate change.

    Rather than taking its point of departure in urban planning or another specific field of the increasing urbanisation, the book contextualises sustainable urban development around the three characteristics of Mistra Urban Futures: that cities are accessible, green and fair. In these contexts, creativity was deployed to advance futures that would work against the democratization of urban space. The aim of this panel is to identify and explore alternative conceptions of creativity that work against the production of neoliberal futures that benefit the wealthy at the expense of the middle and working classes.
