The Isobenefit Cities approach can deliver a higher and more equal quality of life

Classical urban planning, which is clearly evident in Australian cities, uses a central business district (CBD) approach where urban amenities and ease of access to employment fall with the distance from the CBD. The research paper Simulating future societies in Isobenefit Cities: Social isobenefit scenarios demonstrates that multicentre cities would produce a richer spatial distribution of amenities and a higher and especially more equal quality of life.
