A Thematic Journey
©: Springer Verlag

Buchpräsentation: Urbanisation, unlimited – A Thematic Journey von Johannes Fiedler im Rahmen des Symposiums Integral Architecture im HS I der TU Graz.

In a series of essays, the process of urbanisation – a human mega-trend acquiring unprecedented scale and speed as globalisation proceeds –  is examined in the most diverse contexts and stages of development. Drawing on scientific references and identifying recurring themes like dispersion, privatisation and vitality, Fiedler devises the glossary for a cross-cultural understanding of the global urban system emerging. Images and anecdotal evidence reconnect these themes to local realities. The tone of the essays conveys a post-voluntarist attitude, derived from many years of professional experience – critical of both neoliberal practices and determinist ideas.
