Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary In this new millennium, given the continued expansion of technology, materials science and telecommunication coupled with development of social and geo political systems, we can expect the design and shape of our urban environment to change enormously. This two-volume set, the result of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat 6th World Congress: Cities in the Third Millennium, examines the issues which must be addressed if we are to have a common understanding of the forces of change.Experts in architecture, engineering and planning contribute a commentary on the existing condition of urban design, sociology and tall buildings, and expand the boundaries of new construction and engineering technology. These in-depth proceedings, bringing together the world's leading decision makers in urban development, will be essential reading for engineers, architects, planners and others involved with shaping the urban environment of the future.
