Overview

As the home to the most populated cities on the planet, Asia is an emerging world unto itself. AECOM's Asia Beyond Growth is a vivid visual and analytical exploration of the context that will have the most significant impact on the world's built, natural, and social environments. That context? An arc that spans from Shanghai to Dubai and which defines the area that is experiencing history's most dramatic physical transformation. With sections devoted to such topics as "Vertical Growth" and "Infravestment," Asia Beyond Growth is more than a mere chronicle of urban development. This volume is, rather, a complete text on how to adapt environments to the pace of population growth.
