Forlagets beskrivelse
'Build Over There' challenges our conception of the forces that shape and control our cities, why we have deemed it necessary to publicly regulate and invest in them, and what lies at stake for us and our communities with the changes arising from de-industrialisation, political polarisation, privatisation, climate change and social insecurity.
Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
In an age of virtual communication, globalisation and technological advance, does the issue of where we build, or not build, really matter? Described as a code that is to the city what an operating system is to the computer, the evolution of the planning system is a story that can be traced from antiquity, through the industrial revolution to the present day crisis in the welfare state. Its carries assumptions and implications for capitalism, human rights, land values, sustainability, social cohesion, disaster and even military campaigns. Its shortcomings, tensions and contradictions address both strange and familiar issues; from the wasted space embodied in costly new skyscraper proposals to the eviction of residents, lack of affordable housing and problems of highway congestion. In arguing that where we build does matter the author examines two key matters. First, whether the town planning system is still working for the good of the country or if it needs a re-boot? Second, when there are such similar urban issues experienced the world over, why is it so difficult to get agreement as on how to address them?
