A Compact City for All
Speaker: ASAMI Yasushi (The University of Tokyo)
Compact city policies have been adopted by many local governments in Japan. Yet despite a number of studies showing the merits of the compact city, these policies continue to be criticized within society. In order to correctly respond to these criticisms, I argue that benefit allocation, cost imposition, compensatory measures, and the consensus-building process should be improved.
ASAMI Yasushi is a professor of urban engineering at the University of Tokyo. He specializes in urban planning, housing policy, and spatial information science. He is a member of various committees involved in urban planning at the national level. Among his numerous recent publications, he co-authored “The relation between block size and building shape” (Environment and Planning B: Urban Analysis and City Science, 2017, with Masahiro Taima & Kimihiro Hino), and New Standard Condominium Management Constitution (Tokyo: Yuhikaku, 2017, with N. Ando, S. Oyadomari, M. Kasatani, H. Fukui, Y. Muratsuji & S. Yoshida).
