Beschreibung

- The author, having lectured widely on subjects relating to architecture and urbanism around the region, has in depth knowledge of Asian cities and their urban and architectural conditions- The book provides an alternative urbanism addressing the unprecedented urban explosion in the emerging non-Western economies and the increasingly prevalent post-modern conditions of pluralistic culture, tolerance of differences, fragmentation and chaotic order- The book presents a radical theory of Asian ethical urbanism, which transcends and discards the constraints and rigidity of modernist planning and situates its critical substances within the challenging conditions of Asian cities today

Pressestimmen

"Asian Ethical Urbanism sets out the challenge to all involved in the improvement of city life in times of explosive growth. And that, as Lim argues requires innovation from us all, policy setters, developers and designers." Leon van Schaik Innovation Professor RMIT University, Melbourne "With these essays, Lim sets the issue of architecture and urbanism at a very fundamental level: defining and defending a good life for all. Like the conscience of the profession, he reminds us to place more faith in life-worlds than systems, more commitment to justice than profit, more interest in liberty than control." Li Shiqiao Assistant Professor NUS, Singapore "Architects view urban spaces quite differently from social scientists ... Rare is an architect who immerses himself in social science literature, and the rarest of all, is the architect who adopts social science theory to enhance explanations of the brick and mortar creations of his own discipline. This book is an example of what fascinating forms can be created if the two are successfully merged." Sharon Siddique Development Sociologist
