The book explores the underlying dimensions of how existing cities can be transformed into low carbon urban systems and describes the design of low carbon cities in theory and practice.

It considers the connections between low carbon cities and sustainable design, social and individual values, public space, housing affordability, public. Mario Carpo provides a subtle and insightful discussion of the intellectual structures that guide architectural composition and the ways that these structures were transformed by the historic shifts from script to print and from hand-made drawings to mechanically reproduced images.

He goes on to suggest that the current shift from print to digital representations will have similarly. Systems of secondary cities play a vital intermediary role as economic, administrative and logistics hubs within national and global systems of cities.

They have three basic spatial typologies: regional hubs, metropolitan clusters, and corridors. Based on his path breaking theory and research on super-linear scaling, it provides powerful new insights into the basic scientific laws that power our modern society and economy, its startup companies, large corporations and cities.

The book is a must read for CEOs, technologists, mayors, urban leaders and anyone who wants to understand the Cited by: In Urban Energy Systems for Low Carbon Cities, indicators to evaluate urban energy performance are introduced and the status quo of monitoring and efficiency valuation schemes are discussed.

The book discusses advances on the state-of-the-art of research in a number of key areas: Energy demand and consumption mapping and monitoring. Book Description. As people increasingly migrate to urban settings and more than half of the world's population now lives in cities, it is vital to plan and provide for sustainable and resilient food systems which reflect this challenge.

This volume presents experience and evidence-based "state of the art" chapters on the key dimensions of. And I found the book very easy to read and understand, though I learned a lot about very complex structures. The book starts with the explanation of the specific behavior of ants and how this theoretical model of self-organizing systems was built.

The very old and new components were feedback loops, with are necessary for self organized systems/5(). The Zofnass Program for Sustainable Infrastructure is pleased to host the Planning Sustainable Cities Conference.

The conference aims to present an infrastructure-based approach to city planning, an analytical framework for urban sustainability, focusing on the services and performance of infrastructure systems.

Agricultural Urbanism: Handbook for Building Sustainable Food & Agric Systems in 21st Century Cities and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at "The major contemporary work on urban design Splendidly presented, filled with thoughtful and brilliant intuitive insights." —The New Republic In a brilliant synthesis of words and pictures, Edmund N.

Bacon relates historical examples to modern principles of urban planning. He vividly demonstrates how the work of great architects and planners of the past can influence. This book presents a coherent, novel vision of Smart Cities, built around a value-driven architecture.

It describes the limitations of the contemporary notion of the Smart City and argues that the next developmental step must actively include not only the physical infrastructure, but information technology and human infrastructure as well, requiring the intensive integration of.

Cities and Their Vital Systems asks basic questions about the longevity, utility, and nature of urban infrastructures; analyzes how they grow, interact, and change; and asks how, when, and at what cost they should be replaced. Among the topics discussed are problems arising from increasing air travel and airport congestion; the adequacy of water supplies and waste.

This illuminating volume offers a comprehensive reference for researchers investigating smart cities and the IoT, students interested in the distributed computing technologies used by smart living systems, and practitioners wishing to adopt the latest security and connectivity techniques in smart city environments.

Jane Jacobs OC OOnt (née Butzner; 4 May – 25 April ) was an American-Canadian journalist, author, and activist who influenced urban studies, sociology, and book The Death and Life of Great American Cities () argued that "urban renewal"/"slum clearance" did not respect the needs of city-dwellers.

Jacobs organized grassroots efforts to protect Awards: OC, OOnt, Vincent Scully Prize, National. Informed Urban Transport Systems examines how information gathered from new technologies can be used for optimal planning and operation in urban settings. Transportation researchers, and those from related disciplines, such as artificial intelligence, energy, applied mathematics, electrical engineering and environmental science will benefit from the book’s deep dive into the.

In his new book, Better Buses, Better Cities: How to Plan, Run, and Win the Fight for Effective Transit (Island Press, out on October 10), Steven Higashide lays out the answer. “Most of what we. assesses the transportation systems of 24 cities in terms of their impact on city residents.

To do so, we collected a comprehensive set of indicators that cover all modes of transport (personal, public, shared, bicycling, and walking) before, during, and after a journey. A proposal for a new way to understand cities and their design not as artifacts but as systems composed of flows and networks.

In The New Science of Cities, Michael Batty suggests that to understand cities we must view them not simply as places in space but as systems of networks and flows. To understand space, he argues, we must understand flows, and to understand.
