The shape of urban space is determined chiefly by: public administration, investors, designers, and planners. their common goal is the good of all, but neither their visions, nor the paths leading to reach it are alike. the groups share one feature only: reluctance to recognize other viewpoints. the basis of urban sustainable development is the ability to see the city in its entire context that includes the perspectives of all stakeholders. pragmatic administration, mercantile investors, demanding and yet public-spirited inhabitants as well as designers pursuing a perfect city can be all brought together only through a dialogue. in this book we are trying to show how to reconcile the necessary with the impossible in order to build sustainable cities.
