Mixed Use Buildings and Transit Oriented Neighbourhoods reduces Urban Sprawl

As architects and urban planners, we should strive towards the creation of TRANSIT ORIENTED neighbourhoods, promoting a balanced mix of activities such as dwelling, shopping, working, schooling, health care, worshiping and recreation, all within a walkable configuration, where many clusters of neighbourhoods, interlinked with parks, walkways, cycle lanes and tram rails, form suburbs that decreases the private stresses of time in traffic and minimises the public born expenses of road construction and atmospheric pollution, as is currently being induced by suburban sprawl.
