Fluid City by Kim Dovey

Book Description

Fluid City is a story about Melbourne that is also a more general account of local struggles, global markets and the value of waterfront. The book traces the transformation of Melbourne's urban waterfront during the period 1983 to 2004, as the city turned its face to the water and the world, re-inventing itself to attract new flows of global capital.

Becoming Places by Kim Dovey Becoming Places, Paperback (July 2009)

Deals with the practices and politics of place and identity formation - the slippery ways in which who we are becomes wrapped up with where we are. Drawing on the social theories of Deleuze and Bourdieu, this book analyzes the sense of place as socio-spatial assemblage and as embodied habitus, through a broad range of case studies.

Framing Places by Kim Dovey Framing Places, Paperback (August 2007)

Presents an account of the nexus between place and power, investigating how the built forms of architecture and urban design act as mediators of social practices of power. Explored through a range of theories and case studies, this volume shows how lives are 'framed' within the clusters of rooms, buildings, streets and cities.

Fluid City by Kim Dovey Fluid City, Paperback (December 2004)

This book traces the transformation of the urban waterfront of Melbourne, the re-vitalization of the Yarra River waterfront, Melbourne Docklands and Port Philip Bay.
