53 UN-Habitat Model Projects 2013/2014, Time to Think Urban
 
 
 
«The efforts of UN-Habitat have been focused on building a brighter future for developing cities, which are most in need of support in guiding the process of urbanization. This catalogue of projects centres on three fundamental generators of wealth and employment in cities: planning and urban design, urban law and urban economy. It includes experiences in applying UN-Habitat's methodolgy of community participation in the provision of basic services, housing and urban reconstruction. It also highlights how legislation, governance and soil treatment plays a key role in achieving urban transformation.»

Fabio Vanin (2013). Maputo, cidade aberta – Maputo, open city

Fabio Vanin (2013). Maputo, cidade aberta – Maputo, open city.



The book is the result of the investigation conducted in the Mozambican Capital by the author for his Ph.D in Urbanism (IUAV University of Venice, IT) and aims at highlighting some of the most relevant urban, architectural, social and cultural features of the city that are today confronted with the rapid transformations caused by the economic growth of the country. This delicate moment poses urgent questions on the future urban development that is divided by opposed forces: the ambition of becoming another Dubai and the struggle of keeping the existing identity.
