The book “Happy City” by Charles Montgomery illustrates the role of urban design towards providing a happiness solution to the cities of the world.
With this hope, I wrote a hub enumerating four themes from the book that I found applicable to the Philippine context. These four themes are:
- The essentials of a sustainable city
- Dedication to public mass transport and public transit
- Specialized geographies, and
- Defining the city
I invite the architects, engineers, and planners to leave comments and stories of successes and failures in the Philippines towards urban design. I hope one day, in addition to technical documents and consultancy reports, books on urban planning and environmental studies will be published with the narrative and illustrative pattern of “Happy City.”
