Join us for a webinar with Dr. Shruti Hemani and Mr. David Rudlin who will be presenting an overview on the content of their book 'Climax City - Master planning and Complexity of Urban Growth' on August 20 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. The book is a critical exploration of the struggle between the natural growth of cities and master planning. It is an outcome of many years of research and practice combined with urban mapping (of cities across the world at five different scales) and analysis across political, social, cultural and economic dynamics, to help understand the process by which human settlements change and transform over time
