In eight articles, the newspaper edited by Reto Bürgin questions the rapid urbanization and the emergence of informal settlements in the world's metropolises. Experienced and up-and-coming architects and development specialists report on their experiences in urban planning projects in rapidly growing cities around the globe and describe how housing and residential provision are becoming a challenge. The publication brings together contributions that illuminate the emergence of informal settlements from different perspectives and explain them using concrete examples. The richly illustrated collection of texts includes essays on projects and experiences from the authors' daily work and research and provides insight into current discussions and topics.
“Rapid Urbanisation and the Rise of Informal Settlements” is the third independent text publication on the “Polis” project by Christa Ziegler.
