Tracking Urban Expansion

The need to build faster, better and taller is at the forefront of every architect, urban planner and design engineer. Building codes and energy regulations are updating alongside the changing climate. What does the role of existing city infrastructure play in urban expansion? Do we build vertically on top, leveraging them as foundation? Do we demolish and start from scratch? Do we retrofit and make room for utilization? The possibilities for future development are endless!
