What makes for a successful city?

The question as to what makes for a successful city is a complex one, and one that affects nearly all of us; by 2050 around three quarters of the world’s population will live in cities (50% of the worlds population will live in slums in or outside of those cities); Phaidon.com asked an esteemed group of urban experts for their take on successful city living. 

These experts include Ricky Burdett, Founder of the Architecture Foundation and Director of LSE Cities and the Urban Age programme, Richard Sennett of New York University and LSE and Saskia Sassen of Columbia University, New York, all of whom contributed to the book Living in the Endless City which examines our rapidly urbanizing world.
