Description - Global City Blues by Daniel Solomon

In "Global City Blues", renowned architect Daniel Solomon presents a perceptive overview and insightful assessment of how the power and seductiveness of modernist ideals led us astray. As an alternative, Solomon discusses how architecture and cities can offer a vital counterbalance to the forces of sprawl, urban disintegration, and placelessness that have so transformed the contemporary landscape.
