Masterplanning for Change: Designing the Resilient City

Ombretta Romice, S. Porta, A. Feliciotti


The idea of cities as complex systems in constant adaptive change is finally engaging urban thinking. Cities are under increased pressure to be resilient and resistant to the effects of climate change and rapid urbanisation. However, this idea has still not been fully integrated into practice. Promoting sustainability and active solutions to climate change, this book presents a practical approach to masterplanning the city and its areas (existing and new) as adaptable urban environments for the 21st century, addressing the design of cities as complex adaptive systems, with the principles of time and resilience at its core.
