The Western Australian capital, Perth, is the world s most isolated city, in one of the world s most unique biological regions. Already sprawled further than most major international cities, Perth is predicted to grow from 1.5 million people to 4.2 million by 2056. To meet this increase the entire city and its infrastructure needs to double in the next four decades. The result of a two-year research project headed by award-winning landscape architect Richard Weller, Boomtown 2050 is designed to help inform architects and urban planners of the choices available to them concerning rapid city growth and development. Going beyond the sprawl versus anti-sprawl debates, it shows various ways in which this city can be creatively reorganized to meet future needs. With cutting-edge development scenarios that can be applied to any city experiencing rapid change, Boomtown 2050 is essential reading for all urban design professionals.
