I have to vehemently disagree that GOOD urban planning means that cities have to be dense. Good urban planning means creating a space that will allow people to live holistic lives and one that will respond to the needs of the future.

Cities like New York and Chicago are models of urban planning not because they are dense. They are good examples because they were able to expand, BUT maintain a quality of life that's able to sustain a healthy populace. Key to these developments are the abundance of open spaces. Central Park, for example, is 351 hectares. The only space big enough to compare Central Park with is NAIA, which is around 440 hectares. In Manila, the largest open space is Rizal Park which occupies a measly 50 hectares. Major cities in the world like London, Chicago, Washington DC, Tokyo dedicate significant tracts of land to public spaces. Hyde Park, Millennium Park, the National Mall, Ueno Park (together with the East Garden of the Imperial Palace, Yoyogi Park) are amazing examples of public spaces and their necessity in an urban setting.

A key ingredient of a good urban planning is transportation. Cities are able to cope better with an expanding population if it has efficient arteries to transport people around. NYC, Washington DC, Chicago, Paris, London, Tokyo, Singapore are amazing examples of the necessity of a comprehensive public transport system to urban planning.

Strict zoning regulations and their enforcement likewise allow megalopolis's to grow and maintain a healthy grow rate. This is what allows Paris, Washington DC, and Singapore to maintain a sense of order notwithstanding the need to build more and more structures to cater to a growing population.

All told, DENSITY is never a goal of good urban planners. Density is a problem that urban planners need to address because of the need to cater to growing populations. For if space were not a problem, why would we need to pack 12 million people in the limited space we call Metro Manila?
