What makes a city?

Usually we think about buildings, roads, concrete, asphalt and all the other hard grey elements. But what if the city has more than one layer? What if we define a city by looking at water and vegetation as well? Elements, that more than others shape and improve human life. We call this BGI = Blue and Green Infrastructure – the essential layer in a liveable city.  

Making Cities Liveable is an abstract of the full research project on blue and green infrastructure conducted by the Liveable Cities Lab and several universities. It was graciously funded through the Ramboll Foundation.
