Shaping Cities in an Urban Age

Shaping Cities in an Urban Age is an authoritative and fascinating investigation into the spatial and social dynamics of cities at a global scale. This book forms the third and final addition to Phaidon's hugely successful Urban Age series (The Endless City and Living in the Endless City), published in collaboration with the London School of Economics (LSE).

Generously illustrated with photographs, visual data, and statistics, and featuring a series of essays written by leading people in their fields, Shaping Cities in an Urban Age addresses our most urgent contemporary and future urban issues by examining a set of key forces that have combined to create the city as we know it today.. With contributions from educators, authors, architects, and city officials, including Deyan Sudjic, Saskia Sassen, Joan Clos, and Richard Sennett
