Cities and landscape are inextricably linked. Without landscape there is no city and without city there is no landscape as we know it. Nowadays it is hard to hold on to the distinction between landscape and city – the whole planet has become urban. This raises new questions. How can cities defend themselves against climate change? How can you guarantee the supply of drinking water in cities with tens of millions of residents? What can be done about smog choking metropoles? Is food security possible if there is less and less fertile farmland? Rooted City investigates these questions by means of an essay and examples of thirty European cities.
