This publication takes a retrospective look at how ten cities have grown and evolved using the planned city extension approach. The cities presented are very different: they are in developed or developing countries; they were built in the 17th or 20th centuries; they are neighbourhoods or complete cities; they house the rich and the poor.
However, they also have common aspects that serve to define and explain an approach that can guide future urbanization so as to generate cities that are sustainable,socially inclusive, and economically viable.
