Cities of Change, Addis Ababa
The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland, in partnership with the U. of Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, have engaged in a process of creative solutions to the development of Ethiopia's urban environment. This volume presents 49 of the projects, which cover the gamut of a city's infrastructure, including water, people, space, material, capital, and energy, using the basic idea of the stocks and flows of each. Many of the essays include the brainstorming and theory behind the project's conception, making this an excellent volume for a wide readership on urban planning. Not indexed, the volume is well-illustrated with b&w and color maps, drawings, plans, models, and photos.
