Organiser(s): Kei Otsuki, Abigail Friendly, Martijn Oosterbaan (Utrecht University).
Session format: Panel.
In recent years, urgent concerns for climate change have been leading to new infrastructure development. In rapidly growing cities globally, new “corridor” development has increasingly become popular as a way to reduce traffic congestions and thereby carbon emissions and to establish transit-oriented and compact city development. While such infrastructural development addresses sustainability and affordability of urban infrastructure, what is often overlooked is that infrastructure significantly affects the ways that urban land is used, accessed and governed.
This session aims to generate discussions on different experiences of corridor development in cities. The organizers envision to propose a special issue on “sustainable corridors?” as an outcome of this panel.
