Global Capitalism’s Visionis

A Recipe for Disaster!

• We do not share the corporate capitalist vision of rapid urbanization as an investment opportunity, and cities as employment markets, whose expanding size provides economies of scale for profiteers who are valorized for their contribution to the national exchequer.

Page 3: Regional plan (TLP)

Our Vision for Lahore

A center of urbanity and civilization

A city that thrives in a symbiotic relationship with its region.

Page 4: Regional plan (TLP)

Our Goal

• Realization of our highest human potential.• the greatest challenges of the new millennium is the

conservation of our humanity and our environment• Our humanity is defined by the universal set of

qualities and values that define what it means to be “human” – qualities such as Love, Compassion, Justice and Beauty – not by quantities such as gross national product, monetary wealth and material possessions

Page 5: Regional plan (TLP)

The City & its Region

• Cities process primary raw materials, manufacture secondary products and provide services.

• Economically they are integrated with the region that produces the primary products, and the region to which they provide goods and services.

Page 6: Regional plan (TLP)

Parasite & Host

• In a symbiotic relationship, the value of what each takes from the other is more or less equivalent to what it gives.

•  In a parasitic relationship the city extracts resources in excess of their rates of renewal and re-generation, and produces toxic and non-recyclable waste.

Page 7: Regional plan (TLP)

Urban Strategies

• Cities are the biggest consumers & the biggest polluters

• Causes:– Mechanised

transportation– Segregation– High rise– High tech– Low density

• Sustainable cities:– Pedestrian circulation– Integration– Low-rise– Low-tech– High density
