Rapid Urbanism Pattern Language

The Rapid Urbanism Pattern Language promotes synergies between spatial planning, social organizing, economic development and regulatory tools. Learning from informality, the Language devises truly inclusive interfaces between formal and informal systems, rather than forcing the latter to formalize. Thereby, the Language aims to develop simple, affordable and sound mechanisms that are capable of addressing rapid urbanization at speed and at scale.
