Through analysis of dense urban high-rise building complexes as well as research on the relationship of those structures to a city's social organization, this presentation put forward a thesis that the source and vibrancy of high-density cities arises from the opportunity for social proximity to build positive relationships among residents. Based on the principle of sustainable development, this presentation discussed how to deal with space and development models, and proposed to build a high-density vertical city that raises the standards of livability.
