Visions & Research – Outcomes from the International Competition for Sustainable Urban System Design
The outcomes of the International Competition for Sustainable Urban System Design (IC-SUSD) were delivered as part of the 22nd World Gas Conference 2003, held in Tokyo, Japan. This competition, supported by the International Gas Union, presented the proposals from nine teams designated from eight countries for their new sustainable urban designs and their evolutionary processes for the next 100 years. Subject cities had to be existing with populations of over 100,000. This visionary process resulted in well-considered, detailed plans that could offer excellent recommendations to the future of sustainable cities.
