Overview

Multiple City details worldwide trends in urban development against the backdrop of the field's evolution over the past 100 years. As this volume demonstrates, though the discourse around urban development enjoys temporary popularity, development itself leaves behind enduring traces; multiple parallels emerge between today's trends and historical evidence. In this book, 16 of the most pressing urban-development debates are unpacked by leading urban planners, architects, artists and scientists. Also included are contemporary photographs and historical planning materials, which cover everything from the early-twentieth-century garden city to the urban landscape concepts of the early postwar period to contemporary notions of the mobile city and the telepolis. The book is published in conjunction with an exhibition at Munich's Pinakothek der Moderne.
