"As resourceful for architects and policy-makers as it is for anyone interested in how we live now... It enlightens on everything from climate to crime to culture. As a data-driven study, it has a proven takeaway: civic participation is key to defining metropolitan problems while design is key to providing the right solutions."—Aesthetica
