Metropolises in Southeast Asia - 1997

In Europe, we do not know what it is like to live in cities whose population increases fourfold within one generation. While our planning is for the preservation of open green spaces and historic inner cities, Asian metropolises are transforming faster than European cities in the time of the Industrial Revolution. The rapid circulation of buildings, high land prices and densities go hand in hand with pragmatism and financial gain.

With a group of designers and researchers, Hong Kong, Singapore, Hanoi, Kuala Lumpur and the Pearl River Delta will be studied in 1997. The project Metropolises in Southeast Asia will be concluded with a symposium, the reports are bundled. To the best of our knowledge, this book has not been included in public registers. However, you can download the glossary from the study guide here.
