Description - Global City Blues by Daniel Solomon
Much of the architecture and town planning of the past fifty years has been based on an unsubstantiated optimism about the promise of modernity. In our rush to embrace the future, we invented new ways of building that rejected the past and sent people headlong into a placeless limbo where they are insulated from each other and cut off from such basic experiences of location as the weather and the time of day. Global City Blues is a fresh and original look at what the history of urban form can teach us about
creating built environments that work for people.
