Urban Space: An Overview presents the theoretical assumptions regarding urban substructures, historical examples of such substructures, as well as the benefits resulting from their creation.

Next, this compilation investigates footbridge networks and their impact on walkability and street life using Tseung Kwan O, Hong Kong as a case study.

The concluding study examines the factors responsible for fire disasters in the Kumasi Central Market in Ghana. By engaging with victims in the Central Market through a multi-directional methodological approach, traders’ limited understanding of the risks caused by their actions is revealed.
