In the research for Density, I am 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. My one purpose is to participate in a forum on the complexity of urban density and to examine its makers throughout the world.
The button (below) entitles the contributor to buy TOC & Chapter I: Urban Transformation for the purpose of developing writing/reporting partnerships. Think of it as a one of those online $4.99 movie purchases. The cost in this case involves one added decision — after you have a look consider being a content author on the idea of density in a set of networks that might combine one day.
Our team envisions regionally and city-based writers willing to establish a long-term negotiation with the world on the opportunities of density, the problems it solves, through an analysis of issues, various approaches and action ideas.
The goal of the partnership is to produce a complete and continuous online exploration of the success (or failure) of dense urban environments around the world.
The objectives implied by this goal will require the expertise of many contributors with a variety of 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 the development of this unique “world partnership project” can begin by sending an inquiry below.
