In analysing projects located throughout Europe, the research proposes that density is not about volumetric exploitation, but based on the interaction between three elements: agents, fluxes, and territory. This book documents the findings, detailing individual buildings, cataloguing specific urban forms, and drawing conclusions as to performance and quality, also in an ecological sense. It also offers a case study concerning the former site of the Renault factory in Paris, examining how an experimental opportunity can lead to a vibrant piece of city.
