Made in Australia

The Future of Australian Cities

Edited by: Richard Weller, Julian Bolleter

How will Australia creatively plan for a population of 62 million by 2100? The country's current major city planning frameworks only account for an extra 5.5 million people. Whether a 'Big Australia' is wanted or not, the country's 21st century is likely to see rapid and continual growth - and if Australians want livable, highly functioning cities and regional centers, they need to think outside the box. Authors Richard Weller and Julian Bolleter offer optimistic and creative solutions for the future with one imperative: whatever Australians elect to build during this century will make or break the country. *** "Anyone interested in population studies, land use planning, natural resources, or urban studies likely will find this book useful. The many maps and charts are filled with data that thoroughly and concisely explain points made in the text. Highly recommended." - Choice, Vol. 51, No. 1, September 2013
