Common housing - gated communities

Human habitation represents one of the primary needs of society. How can this substantial challenge be met according to standards of sustainability – in view of rapid population growth and exploding settlements?

What are the forwardlooking responses to urban sprawl and the specific demands of particular social groups (neighborhoods, gated communities, golf course developments)? What are the opportunities and limits for sustainable construction?
