Nothing else damages the earth's environment more than our cities. As the world's population has grown, our cities have burgeoned, and their impact on the environment worsened. Meanwhile, from the isolated, gated communities within Houston and Los Angeles, to the millions of residents of Bombay living in squalor, the city has failed to serve its ideal function--as the cradle of civilization, the engine of culture, and the inspiration for community and citizenship. In Cities for a Small Planet, Sir Richard Rogers, one of the world's leading architects and the designer of the Pompidou Center in Paris, demonstrates how future cities could provide the springboard for restoring humanity's harmony with its environment.Rogers outlines the disastrous impact cities have had and will continue to have on our world, from waste-saturated Tokyo Bay, to the massive plumes of pollution caused by London's traffic, to the depleted water resources of Mexico City. He traces these problems to the underlying social and cultural values that create them--unchecked commercial zeal, selfish individualism, and a lack of community. Bringing to bear concepts such as that of "open-minded" space--places within cities that serve multiple functions such as markets, parks, and sidewalk cafes--he explains how urban design can be used to give citizens a sense of shared experience. The city built with comfortable and safe public space can bring diverse groups together and breed a sense of tolerance, awareness, identity, and mutual respect. He calls for a new theoretical shift in the way cities do business and interact with the environment, arguing that many products come to market and are sold without figuring their social or environmental cost.Rogers goes on to describe the city of the future: one that is sustainable within its own environment; that can make a positive impact on its surroundings; that encourages communication among its citizens; that is compact and focused around neighborhoods; and that is beautiful, a city whose buildings and spaces spark the creative potential of its inhabitants.As our population grows larger, our planet grows smaller. Cities for a Small Planet is a passionate and eloquent blueprint for the cities we must create in response, cities that provide for the needs of both their residents and the earth on which they live.… (mer)

CIUDADES PARA UN PEQUEÑO PLANETA

La mitad de la población mundial vive en ciudades. Para el año 2025, esta
cifra habrá alcanzado hasta los tres cuartos de la población. Y sin embargo,
la ciudad moderna-entendida como creación de un sector privado
interesado en el beneficio financiero y un sector público motivado por
las soluciones a corto plazo-es una causa directa de contaminación,
alienación y división social.

En este libro, basado en sus conferencias de Reith (1995), el arquitecto
Richard Rogers presenta un nuevo y radical programa de acción para el
futuro de nuestras ciudades. Demuestra la influencia que ejercen la
arquitectura y el planeamiento urbano sobre nuestras vidas cotidianas,
y advierte sobre el impacto potencialmente negativo que pueden suponer
las ciudades modernas sobre el medio ambiente. Rogers argumenta
que solo a través del planeamiento sostenible podremos proteger la ecología
de nuestro planeta y cumplir, así, con nuestras responsabilidades ante las
generaciones venideras. El planeamiento urbano sostenible se configura,
así, como nuestra única oportunidad real de crear unas ciudades
dinamicas ideales que sean, a la vez, respetuosas.con los ciudadanos
y con el medio ambiente.

Esta edición cuenta además con un prólogo de Pasqual Maragail, Persona
muy sensibilizada con estos temas, Maragall ha expresado siempre, durante
su mandato en la alcaldía de Barcelona y posteriormente en conferencias
clases y programas electorales, su inquietud ante el crecimiento de la ciudad
global y la conveniencia de actuar con flexibilidad y prudencia en beneficio
de la sostenibilidad de la especie.
