‘Songdo: the hype and decline of world’s first smart city’ in ‘Sustainable Cities in Asia’





Routledge published ‘Sustainable Cities in Asia’ last September.
The book was edited by Federico Caprotti, Associate Professor in Human Geography at the University of Exeter, and Li Yu, Reader in Planning at Cardiff University.
It contains 23 chapters that show recent urban policies and practical challenges to build up sustainable cities in Asian cities.

I contributed Chapter 12: ‘Songdo: the hype and decline of world’s first smart city’ for the book. It looks at the history of Korean smart city policy, traces the twenty-five-year history of Songdo and critically reviews the reality of Songdo.

You can find more details of the book from Routledge’s webpage.
