About this ebook

A Map of Hutopolis sumarizes a research programme that extrapolates the lessons learned from the Chinese hutongs into the realm of visionary scenarios applicable to new models of urbanization.

In the making of the city only an orchestra of voices and thoughts played out by a large variety of citizens, policy-makers, professionals and researchers could lead towards a balanced and sustainable living and working city, that is why the research seized upon the objectivity of foreign researchers, complemented with the knowledge of local teams, and worked to turn it into a productive exchange.  

About the author

 The research has counted with the support of governmental institutions, private companies, universities, urban planners, conservationists, architects, editors, film-makers, graphic designers, artists and a large number of enthusiasts and citizens who embrace the idea of an urban evolution for better cities.
