Interviews with Meta Berghauser Pont on how the negative effects of densification are overlooked

Meta Berghauser Pont has been interviewed by Chalmers ACE news and Hållbart samhälsbyggande on the negative effects of densification, following the results of a research project now concluded. The researchers have made a systematic overview of comprehensive plans from 59 Swedish municipalities and review of scientific articles, studying to what extent a motive for densification is mentioned, positive or negative, and to which field that motive connects to. Densification is a generally accepted strategy in urban planning but the review shows good reasons to neither forget the negative side effects, nor the need for new research questions.
