Abstract

The steady process of urbanization that is shaping our planet is having gradually increasing influence on communities, cultures and the local economy, modes of life and the patterns of behaviour of billions of people in the global economy and the environment and has revealed a direct relationship with climate change in progress. The large regional differences of these processes are however, united by the increasing need for primary non-renewable resources, settlement patterns by diffusive and, more generally, development models that pose serious doubts about overall sustainability in the long term. This essay (considering that the issues around the sustainability of contemporary patterns of settlement are the main theme for the disciplines involved in the project of the city) investigates a relationship of fundamental importance, namely that between urban form, infrastructure for mobility and sustainability of changes in order to demonstrate that: “In this context, the relationship between urban compactness and mobility is central to the debate” (Williams K. 2000).
