The Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize is a biennial international award that honours outstanding contributions to the creation of vibrant, liveable and sustainable urban communities around the world. Awarded jointly by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and the Centre for Liveable Cities, both in Singapore, the 2012 prize went to the City of New York for its remarkable transformation in the decade since the 2001 World Trade Center attack. Cities in Transformation presents the award winners and special mentions for the 2010 and 2012 editions of the award and honours their efforts to create dynamic and sustainable urban communities. The cities featured are New York (2012 laureate) and Bilbao (2010 laureate), as well as special mentions, Ahmedabad, Brisbane, Copenhagen, Malmö, Vancouver, Melbourne, Curitiba (awarded to Jamie Lerner), Delhi (awarded to Sheila Dikshit) and Khayelitsha in Cape Town (awarded to AHT Group AG/SUN Development). Cities in Transformation includes a foreword by Lee Kuan Yew, the venerable Singapore statesman from whom the Prize is named, and insightful and fascinating chapters on each city that feature stunning photography that will give readers unique insights into the cities that are leading the way in inspired urban planning.
