Intimate Metropolis by Vittoria Di Palma

Book Description

Intimate Metropolis explores connections between the modern city, its architecture, and its citizens, by questioning traditional conceptualizations of public and private. Rather than focusing purely on public spaces-such as streets, cafes, gardens, or department stores-or on the domestic sphere, the book investigates those spaces and practices that engage both the urban and the domestic, the public and the private. The legal, political and administrative frameworks of urban life are seen as constituting private individuals' sense of self, in a wide range of European and world cities from Amsterdam and Barcelona to London and Chicago. Providing authoritative new perspectives on individual citizenship as it relates to both public and private space, in-depth case studies of major European, American and other world cities and written by an international set of contributors, this volume is key reading for all students of architecture.

Wasteland by Vittoria Di Palma Wasteland, Hardback (August 2014)

Focusing on the "anti-picturesque", this book offers an account of landscapes that have traditionally drawn fear and contempt. It argues that a convergence of beliefs, technologies, institutions and individuals in 18th-century England resulted in the formulation of cultural attitudes that continue to shape the ways we evaluate landscape today.
