Latin America and the Caribbean is one of the most urbanised regions in the world, and cities continue to grow enormously. Long-term strategies must be developed in order to respond to the challenges involved. How do you expand a growing city without losing its urbanity? How can urban growth be linked to social, environmental, cultural and economic issues?
Urban Design Lab (UDL) has worked in more than 20 cities in Latin America and the Caribbean – developing planning tools that trigger transformation processes by involving and supporting local neighbourhoods. This handbook explains the context and challenges of these cities and offers solutions to the problems of urban agglomerations. It encourages readers to make use of the toolbox, tailor it to their needs and start similar processes in their own cities.
