Have you ever wondered how New York City’s urban form compares to London? Or the ancient streets of Rome? This comparison from Bricoleurbanism compares eight famous cities’ urban form at the same scale to the city of Mississauga, ON, revealing “the inherent problems of scale in trying to evolve any suburban, auto-oriented area into a more pedestrian-oriented center.”
I would be fascinated to see a similar comparison of these cities with Asian Megacities. Until then I will just have to share this comparison of urban density in Johannesburg, London, New York and Shanghai from The Endless City.
