19.20.21 (Urban or Rural?)

December 6, 2007

We, the people of cities are constructing most remarkable story of 21st century, the plot of which can be summarized as:

19 cities in the world with 20 million people in the 21st century

Read complete 19.20.21 story by Richard Saul Wurman (American architect and graphic designer who coined the term information architect and is famous for presenting complex data and information in meaningful, simple manner)

————-

What can we learn from this 192021 presentation?

Atanu Dey on Deeshaa says:

“There is a definite trend and a correlation between the growth of cities and the progress of human civilization. India needs to figure out how to manage the transition of its rural population into livable cities. Without the urbanization of India’s rural population it is not even remotely possible for India to work its way out of poverty.”

I wonder how, when we don’t even have livable urban cities!! We live in Urban Ghetto.

If humans are urban species, who is living in rural area? what is happening there?

Do we need to create more super cities or greater number of livable cities?

I feel we need to ruralize (if that word exist) our cities and urbanize our villages. Any thoughts?
