Description - Splintering Urbanism by Steve Graham
We live in a rapidly urbanising world, in a global society. Networked infrastructures, such as telecommunications, transport, energy and water, are the resources shaping our contemporary cities. Splintering Urbanism makes an international and interdisciplinary analysis of the complex interactions between infrastructure networks and urban spaces. It delivers a new and powerful way of understanding contemporary urban change, bringing together discussions about: globalization and the city technology and society urban space and urban networks infrastructure and the built environment developed, developing and post-communist worlds. With a range of case studies, illustrations and boxed examples, from New York to Jakarta, Johannesberg to Manila and Sao Paolo to Melbourne, Splintering Urbanism demonstrates the latest social, urban and technological theories, which give us an understanding of our contemporary metropolis.
