Among a variety of design principles this book suggests that walkability is the fundamental principle to improving quality of life. A walkable city provides a convenient and comfortable walking and cycling environment for all local residents. This book attempts to explore the design innovation to create a walkable city and propose solutions within the high-density cities - Shenzhen and Shanghai. Selected cases include an urban village in Shenzhen and the CBD and a workers' community in Shanghai as different spatial samples to apply specific design strategies for a livable, healthy, and sustainable city."--Publisher's description."@en ;
