"While acknowledging that utopia doesn’t exist, and that top-down urban planning isn’t necessarily the right approach, Space10 puts forth a number of ways to improve existing cities and create new building models for undeveloped areas. The book (...) features projects from 53 cities around the world that offer solutions to some of the most pressing problems facing urban areas today."
"The Ideal City takes a hopeful approach at a time when people around the world are thinking about reemerging from their homes and returning to the cities they left behind"
"stories of visionary innovation and hope-stirring wisdom from architects, designers, entrepreneurs and community leaders about game-changing projects (...) demonstrating design’s power to improve the wellbeing of people and planet on a daily basis and for generations to come."
"Throughout hopeful pages, we’re reminded that the future of cities will not be shaped by governments, policy-makers, architects or urban designers, but by the coming together of millions of engaged citizens who buoy up their communities in a patchwork of solutions that will keep us afloat."
"the thrust of the book is to capture urban projects that are striving to make a difference, gently but inexorably steering towards the impossible goal of ‘utopia’. As a result, there’s a welcome thread of positivity running through the pages (...) You’ll come away from these pages realising that although design leadership is never in question, what’s needed most is political will."
