Beyond Growth tells a regional story that the whole world should hear. The needs of the emerging world (in particular the Asian continent) are leaving a carbon footprint--that is rapidly expanding to match the pace of the U.S. and Europe--which manifests in a dramatically transformed built and natural environment posing unprecedented challenges. The emerging world is a testing ground for radical urban design proposals, several of which are reviewed in this timely publication, divided into two sections, Growth and Beyond, The former provides visually dynamic statistics on population, consumption and environmental impact, the latter details specific cities and projects; included are over 700 color images. Largely written and edited by EDAW, a leading environmental design group, the volume includes a text by Rodolphe el-Khoury, Canada Research Chair in Architecture and Urban Design.
