Increasing densities in cities: How do we maximize benefits and minimize harm?
There is growing recognition globally that to accommodate a growing population and to build more sustainable cities, land use will need to be intensified and housing densities increased. However, to produce the best outcomes, thought needs to be given to how to build higher density housing, with the aim of maximizing community-wide benefits, and minimizing unintended consequences. This talk will consider factors that influence optimizing higher density housing and highlight areas that require further research.
