Cities are dynamic in nature, they keep on changing in terms of population growth and land speculation. Thus, the resultant built form has become complex, chaotic and shapeless. It no more reflects a coherent vision and ambiance to its environmental context. The mega trends of urbanization, climate change, globalization and demographic change will shape the future of cities. There is a need to recognize the potential and address the need of urban development in a dynamic manner. The complexity involved requires a holistic view and sustainable solutions for cities.
