Cities of Love
Author:
Valerie Ang and Tai Lee Siang

Valerie Ang and Tai Lee Siang travelled widely as part of the latter’s work and NGO’s commitments particularly in the green building movement with World Green Building Council, WorldGBC. For over 25 years, Lee Siang is an established architect, industry leader and is now the Chair of WorldGBC.

Valerie compliments Lee Siang through her incisive observations on global social changes.

Cities of Love aims to urge, persuade and provoke fellow residents of our earth to collectively shape the cities we live in. To achieve this, her residents must again uncover the reasons to love and therefore sustain her cities. To this end, Cities of Love tries to identify the ingredients that could possibly be the reasons for such active love.

When a city is filled by the people who love their cities, then can a city have a greater chance of advancing towards a better tomorrow. Love is a mighty force to be reckoned with.
