Overview

Splintering Urbanism makes an international and interdisciplinary analysis of the complex interactions between infrastructure networks and urban spaces. It delivers a new and powerful way of understanding contemporary urban change, bringing together discussions about:

*infrastructure and the built environment
*developed, developing and post-communist worlds.
With a range of case studies, illustrations and boxed examples, from New York to Jakarta, Johannesberg to Manila and Sao Paolo to Melbourne, Splintering Urbanism demonstrates the latest social, urban and technological theories, which give us an understanding of our contemporary metropolis.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Both interesting and important. It addresses the notion of the network city in a profound way ... a promising and fruitful approach.' - Journal of Housing and the Built Environment

'Splintering Urbanism is a significant work and achievement, bringing together a tremendous amount of research on networks and urban technologies and putting them in one 'manual' or 'guide', whilst at the same time providing an authoritative view of implications and limitations of the 'splintering' process ... it should earn a position as an essential item in any up-to-date reading list.' - Urban Studies
