The Urban Habitat committee focuses on the role of tall buildings within a city and how those tall buildings affect the quality of life for those that live or work within or near them. One of the outputs of this committee will be a publication. The working title of this publication is simply: Urban Spaces Surrounding Tall Buildings. This publication will feature the wide variety of urban spaces surrounding tall buildings. These range from London’s Pocket Parks and Toronto’s POPS to recent Master Planned Communities such as Chicago's New East Side to the Grand Dubai Fountain in Downtown Dubai and Singapore’s Marina Bay Promenade.
