When one thinks of cities and masterplanning it's easy to recall any number of generic projects consisting of a series of colourful blocks thoughtlessly placed down over a city plan. These projects are almost always designed without passion; intellect or thought to how people would actually use them. To see a book such as Smartcities is to see an alternative and inspired vision of our future. Lim's inventive, witty and often-humorous book addresses the serious issues of sustainability without neglecting the final user, the inhabitants of these cities. This book is a welcome departure from the norm, a beautifully illustrated book full of ideas, a must for any architect, designer or anyone interested in what our cities could and should be.

"Smartcities and Eco-warriors" is certainly an exceptional read. Its initial manifesto states a clear ambition for the future of our cities with pledges based upon social and environmental concerns. Following the inspiring read, a series of imaginative and inventive projects propose innovative scenarios for the future of the "Smartcity", beautifully executed in both design and logic. Easily accessible and a must for any potential eco-warrior and eco-warriors alike!

A great book showing that being eco / sustainable doesn't have to be boring or highly technical.Its refreshing to see the emphasis of social and agricultural sustainability being used to drive the designs. This book is lavishly illustrated and has revolutionary concepts for each of the 12 urban design projects. A must read for any budding architect or master-planner!
