New LSE Cities research project on Resource Urbanisms

28 July 2015

Resource Urbanisms: Natural resources, urban form and infrastructure in the case of Asia’s diverging city models’ is a new two-year LSE Cities research project co-funded by LSE Kuwait Programme/LSE Middle East Centre to examine multiple aspects of how natural resources, urban form and infrastructure affect each other and potentially lead to the establishment of divergent forms of urbanism.

The research will include the multi-scale temporal analysis of different types and changes of urban development in Kuwait and Abu Dhabi (a second Middle East comparator case) and two contrasting city types in East Asia, Hong Kong and Singapore.
