High density living
As urban populations grow, so does the need for the creation of new space and the more efficient use of existing space
The modern high density city is now home to millions of people worldwide. The inevitable trend of urbananization created highly dense cities and has confronted us with increasing challenges to improve the quality of our living environment. Heavily urbanized cities bring along a host of problems such as overcrowding in poorly designed high density dwellings, traffic congestion, urban pollution and poor public hygiene, heat island effect, inadequate open spaces, planning and inadequate water management all affecting the functionality of the modern city space.
