summary The natural and the man-made environment is under increasing stress. We are entering a phase when the exploitation of energy resources is likely to cause a dramatic acceleration in our rate of impact on the natural environment; in particular, there is cause for serious concern regarding the damaging visual impact of energy related developments - oil terminals, dams, power stations, electricity transmission lines, open cast mining - on remaining areas of relatively unspoilt rural landscape. In the developed countries, the urban environment is presenting architects, planners and development agencies with some of the most significant and intractable problems in the last decade of the 20 Century. The problems are the most chronic in those cities which rose to greatness at the height of the industrial revolution- as heavy industry has declined, industrial sites have become derelict, the working population has drifted away and housing has fallen below tolerable standards. Yet in most cases, much evidence of urban greatness remains - in the grandeur of the public buildings, in the scale of the cityscape and in the spirit of those who still have their homes, and their cultural roots, in the inner city.
