Metropolitan Planning + Design

Series Editors: Nelson, Arhur C., Ewing, Reid

A collaboration between Island Press and the University of Utah’s Department of City & Metropolitan Planning, this series provides a set of tools for students and professionals working to make our cities and metropolitan areas more sustainable, livable, prosperous, resilient, and equitable.
As the world’s population grows to nine billion by mid-century, the population of the US will rise to one-half billion. Along the way, the physical landscape will be transformed. Indeed, two-thirds of the built environment in the US at midcentury will be constructed between now and then, presenting a monumental opportunity to reshape the places we live.
The Metropolitan Planning + Design series presents an integrated approach to addressing this challenge, involving the fields of planning, architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, public policy, environmental studies, geography, and civil and environmental engineering. The series draws from the expertise of some of the world’s leading scholars in the field of Metropolitan Planning + Design. Please see Islandpress.org/Utah/ for more information
