The scale and speed at which Asian cities are growing and densifying is without historical precedent. Continued recycling of existing urban planning and architectural models will lead to devastating effects on land, infrastructure, and the environment. The Vertical Cities Asia International Design Competition and Symposium were created to encourage design explorations and research into the prospects of new models for the increasingly vertical, dense, and intense urban environments in Asia. This book - fully illustrated in colour and beautifully presented with special Swiss-style cut-flush binding - presents the spectrum of innovative design and theoretical approaches proposed in the competition entry schemes and symposium.
