“Zaheer Allam is a dynamic young thinker in urbanism and sustainability, who is making a name for himself championing low-cost solutions for the developing world. Going against the current trend, Allam argues for a human-scale yet scientific approach to design and planning. I firmly believe that Allam will play a major role in saving the world from a future energy disaster.“
