Abstract

This book is primarily concerned with the decisions and steps that academics, students and professionals interested in sustainable built environment have to take in order to make it happen. The book critically reviews, documents, and reflects upon the theory and practise of planning and designing for sustainable suburban development, and can be used to both broadly guide or inform sustainable spatial development, and more specifically the delivery of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The book draws throughout on international examples and applications of sustainability and discusses at length the sustainability potential of a real-life development site, Väsjön Town (Väsjön hereafter), a large-scale and suburban area earmarked for densification, located in the municipality of Sollentuna to the north-east of City of Stockholm, in Sweden.
