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 deliver quality of life, from urban swimming pools to rooftop clubs?

Packed with great images and intriguing reports, this book takes the urbanism debate away from city hall and explains what makes a great city in ways that will inspire us all.
