How should a modern city develop - in width or in height? What is the most appropriate ratio of its built-up areas (different number of stores), as well as parks, public areas, etc.? Architects and urbanists reflect on this problem during few centuries.
In the homeland of skyscrapers, the United States, there were several revolutionary for their time concepts: "The Beautiful City", "Garden City", "Radiant City". They considered how to "fit" the high-rise buildings into the existing urban structure.
At the session "Innovative Approaches to Creating a "Perfect City", developers, architects and authorities will try to create their own model of a "Perfect City", comfortable for residents and convenient to manage.
