Lecture 12
Sustainable City Debates
- cities are path-dependent
- important to recognize city patterns
- cities are code-generated; continuous, never-ending movement of standardized
units
Sustainable Cities Idea
- cities = key to environmental sustainability (idea draws on sustainable
development; doesn't compromise to meet future needs)
- inter-generational equity
- intra-generational equity
- transfrontier responsibility
- "sustainable development is a development that improves the long-term health
of human and ecological systems" (Wheeler 1998)
So?
- can policy and city planning actually help to make cities more sustainable?
- we know that current cities are unsustainable
Urban Sustainability Issues
- Energy use
- Co2 emissions
- Water consumption
- Resource consumption
- Waste production
- Storm water surges
---- All are URBAN FORMS
What is Urban Form?
- "the spatial arrangement of activities in a city, the resulting spatial flows of
people, goods, and information and the physical features which shape activities,
including buildings, surfaces, transport and other infrastructure systems"
- urban form = hot political issue at start of 21st century
Sustainable Urban Form?
- urban density, land use mix, etc.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
