Urban design gone wrong: Density
from By Lucy Wallwork
There is perhaps no more divisive term in our cities than that of urban density. Often measured in "dwellings per hectare" or "people per hectare," for some it can evoke our greatest fears about what our neighborhoods might become. For others, higher density is an environmental imperative to manage the environmental crisis. For yet others, higher densities hold the key to "happier cities." But there is less consensus than we might think about density. Where does "density" end and "overcrowding" begin?
