Abstract

The quintessence of the Isobenefit Urbanism presented here, is to offer fair, walkable and green cities. Its three cornerstones are Modernity, Humanity and Naturality, which are exposed by five principles. The latter, rather then describe The ideal city, which doesn’t exist outside our own minds, describe what a city should avoid in order to not become an unideal city. Isobenefit Cities do not aim to replace the historical town-city model, but to guide future cities growth and to replace the present, often unliveable, megacity typologies through a Modern Postmodern approach: steering the future (Modernism) by keeping diversities, cultures and history alive (Postmodernism), and considering the retroactive game between planning and citizens behaviours. In societal terms, the Isotropic approach aspires a reciprocal understating and awareness about our equality within and, especially, across societies. However, as for the urban point of view, this ambition for equality doesn’t mean an identical, global, unique culture which would signify reciprocal impoverishment.
