Project Title: Asian Cities: Liveability, Sustainability, Diversity and Spaces of Encounter
Start Date: NOV/2010 End Date: NOV/2013
This project adopts a multi-disciplinary social science analysis (which includes nature-society approaches, technological considerations, planning and discourses) to examine four Asian cities. It aims to contribute to urban theory and urban studies through providing effective and accurate understandings of what is taking place, and may occur in the future. Through an interdisciplinary approach the project provides holistic understandings of the key workings of urban social, cultural, environmental and technological inter-relationships, processes and transformations. Current social urban studies and environmental urban studies tend to remain separate from each other; on the contrary this study brings both components together.
