Uneven Growth: Tactical Urbanisms for Expanding Megacities
In 2030, the world's population will be eight billion people. Two-thirds will live in cities; most will be poor. This unbalanced growth will be one of the greatest challenges faced by societies across the globe. City authorities, urban planners, designers, economists, and others will have to join forces to avoid a major social and economic catastrophe. Uneven Growth, the third iteration of MoMA's Issues in Contemporary Architecture series, is a combination of workshop, exhibition, and publication that brings together an international group of scholars, practitioners and other experts on architecture and urbanism in an effort to address rapid and uneven urban growth around the globe.
Uneven Growth features proposals for six cities—New York, Mumbai, Rio de Janeiro, Istanbul, Hong Kong and Lagos—each developed by a pair of teams, one from the host city and one from abroad. Contributions from each of the teams and essays by leading scholars make the publication a rich resource for students and professionals alike.
