Wiek XXI będzie epoką miast. I choć miasta bardzo różnią się między sobą, to wszystkie stoją w obliczu rozwiązywania takich samych w istocie problemów. Autor eseju, w oparciu o swoje wieloletnie doświadczenie związane z udziałem w przygotowywaniu wizji i planów rozwoju wielu miast na świecie, zidentyfikował cztery grupy problemów, które określa jako główne filary fundamentów pod budowę efektywnie funkcjonujących miast, niezbędne do ich harmonijnego i zrównoważonego rozwoju w warunkach globalnej konkurencji. (abstrakt oryginalny)

The 21st century will be an era of cities. And although cities differ significantly, they all face similar problems. The author of this essay, basing on his multiannual involvement in numerous city visioning exercises has identified four groups of issues, which he considers to be the main pillars for the foundation of building effectively functioning cities, necessary for their harmonious and sustainable development in conditions of global competition.
