In 2030, the world’s pop­u­la­tion will be a stag­ger­ing eight bil­lion peo­ple. Of these, two-thirds will live in cities. Most will be poor. With lim­ited resources, this uneven growth will be one of the great­est chal­lenges faced by soci­eties across the globe.

To engage this inter­na­tional debate, Uneven Growth brings together six inter­dis­ci­pli­nary teams of researchers and prac­ti­tion­ers to exam­ine new archi­tec­tural pos­si­bil­i­ties for six global metropolises.
