    Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNConference contribution with ISSN or ISBNpeer-review


    Contradictory claims are currently made for the desirable density of sustainable cities. The prevailing view is that high densities are appropriate for sustainable cities. By contrast, authors assessing the environmental impact of remote food production suggest much lower densities. In this paper three design proposals for cities in the UK, at different densities, are used as case studies. These explore the architectural possibilities for introducing urban agriculture to cities and assess the relationship between density and environmental impact.
