City of Dreams (2006): Brazilian urban planning guru, Jaime Lerner, has cracked the problem of getting a city to run well. His idea – to put people before cars – has vastly improved residents’ quality of life.

Lerner has revolutionised transport in his hometown of Curibita, diverting traffic around the centre.
