Towns are quickly growing into cities, and some of the densest places in the world are comprised of makeshift homes, otherwise referred to as slums. Furthermore, already overcrowded cities have to absorb people leaving their rural hometown in hope of job opportunities. There are currently over 1 billion slum dwellers in the world. This number is expected to reach 2 billion by the year 2030. </p> Antigravity Andrzej Bratkowski 2015-02-10T03:18:00-05:00 >2015-02-10T13:13:42-05:00 <p>Architecture traveler and reporter, interested in sustainable and ecological design, symbiosis of technology and environment.</p> School of Architecture and Urban Planning/UWMilwaukee snatraj 2015-02-06T20:58:00-05:00 >2015-07-23T08:00:08-04:00 <p>Each semester, SARUP turns into a beehive of creative activity, with the collective energy of students and faculty resulting in projects and presentations that excite and intrigue, as they generate enquiry into the disciplines of architecture and urban planning.
