in Density

Density

Our one purpose is to participate in a forum on the complexity of urban density and examine its makers worldwide. In the research for Density, we are reading hundreds of websites, books, and articles. Most are online.  We are not stepping completely away from the dead tree press, but new opportunities are exposed with more than one thing in hand at a time.

RLC

  • Our team envisions regionally and city-based writers willing to establish a long-term negotiation with the world on density opportunities and the problems it solves by analyzing issues, various approaches, and action ideas.
  • The partnership aims to produce a continuous, worldwide exploration of dense urban environments’ success (or failure).
  • The objectives implied by this goal will require the expertise of many contributors with various skills and thousands of locations. For example, the development and use of KML code will add an important online function.
  • Additional excerpts from a working draft of Density and our offer to join in developing this unique “world partnership project” can begin by sending an inquiry below.
