Future cities: design opportunities for the improvement of air quality
Languages of publication
This paper proposes a series of questions on how recent cities’ eco-programs and design ideas could (or not) contribute towards reducing air pollution in future cities while creating vibrant and livable environments. Design Strategies related to a series of European, American and Asian cities affected by poor air quality condition, are critically discussed. Because effective policies to reduce carbon emissions take a long time to initiate, urban planners and architects have the unique opportunity to creatively re-examine city streets, landscape and buildings as active solutions to inspire sustainable living and combat poor air quality.
