Transforming Our Lives Through Urban DesignBook - 2013
A brilliant young thinker shows how lessons from the emerging science of happiness can be used to fix broken cities - and lives - around the world. More of us than ever are moving to inner cities, mixed-use suburbs, and densely constructed towns. Our surroundings have certainly changed - but is city living cheering us up, or are we as gloomy on our walks to the subway as we were on our long, predawn commutes? And if that's the case, how can we turn things around? Full of cutting-edge insights from behavioural economists and leading urban thinkers, "Happy City" offers a completely new way to examine city life, showing us how small innovations can radically improve our experiences.
