This volume is the first of an international series devoted to the new frontiers of urban planning in the fullest sense, incorporating many elements of successful cities. It represents an effort to bring together the many disparate strands which comprise a city, and to look carefully at the reasons why a city is successful.
The subjects range from the arts to long-range water planning, climate change policy to architecture, history, the built environment, major events and the culinary scene, and includes many more topical areas written by authoritative leaders in various fields.
Fast Thinking’s Melbourne: Global Smart City is designed for readers who are curious about a successful city and its growth plans, a world-class city, which is thinking 30 or more years into the future and acting now.
