The Civic City in a Nomadic World

€ 44,95 order

> Charles Landry, the inventor of the Creative City concept and author of The Art of City Making
>An inspirational tour de force, this richly illustrated book provides deep insight of where the future city is going
> Examples from across the world show how citizens and cities are reshaping their urban environment

We are in the midst of redesigning the world and all its systems as we witness the biggest mass movement of people, goods, factories, frenzied finance and ideas in history. Vast flows make the new norm nomadic. Yet there is a yearning for belonging, distinctiveness and identity as the ‘anytime, anyplace, anywhere’ phenomenon enabled by digitization is changing how we interact with space, place and time.

Old certainties are crumbling and systems are breaking at escalating speed. Apprehension is in the air as we invent a different kind of city. This is the Civic City. It tries to find a pathway through the major faultlines, dilemmas and potentials of our time – shared lives, inequality, environmental distress and urban vitality. This is a place where we reinvent anchorage, an urban commons, connection, but also possibility and inspiration.

In this new ground-breaking book, the inventor of the Creative City concept helps us navigate the evolving urban landscapes and its potential.
