Catalogue published in conjunction with the exhibition 'Uneven Growth: Tactical Urbanisms for Expanding Megacities' at the Museum of Modern Art, New York from November 2014 to May 2015.
'In 2030, the world’s population will be a staggering eight billion people. Of these, two-thirds will live in cities. Most will be poor. With limited resources, this uneven growth will be one of the greatest challenges faced by societies across the globe. Over the next years, city authorities, urban planners and designers, economists, and many others will have to join forces to avoid major social and economic catastrophes, working together to ensure these expanding megacities will remain habitable.
To engage this international debate, "Uneven Growth" brings together six interdisciplinary teams of researchers and practitioners to examine new architectural possibilities for six global metropolises: Hong Kong, Istanbul, Lagos, Mumbai, New York, and Rio de Janeiro.' - from MoMA's website
This publication features critical essays, highlights from a survey on tactical urbanisms around the world, and new design scenarios for six world megacities.
