Vivons la ville autrement

A new way to inhabit our cities

Sustainable cities that are great places to live


L. Estival, M. Musy, P. Picq

Edition 2017

Will cities of the future seem like Paradise on Earth, ensuring well-being and good health for all city dwellers? It may sound like a surprising question. And yet from Zurich to Tokyo, via Nantes or Lyon, researchers, businesses and ordinary citizens are working together to invent metropolises of the future that will be great places to live... With the help of around a dozen experts, this book – which takes neither a rashly ecological nor a blindly technical standpoint – explores current changes by pointing out advances as well as limitations.
