Shaping Cities in an Urban Age

The Urban Age project has investigated urbanisation processes for over a decade, culminating in the book Shaping Cities in an Urban Age, edited by Ricky Burdett and Philipp Rode. This richly illustrated volume brings together authoritative research and fresh insights that explain the complexities of urbanisation. It identifies current trends that are making cities more fragmented, less equitable and environmentally more damaging, and argues powerfully for a more integrated social, environmental and spatial approach that can inform and inspire city-makers that are shaping an increasingly urban world. The book is the third and final instalment in the ‘Endless Cities’ series published by Phaidon. It can be ordered here:

Co-designing the city: Architecture + Informal Intelligence

The newspaper is a result of the work developed during the urbanXchanger project in 2015/2016. Urban practitioners from Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Cape Town and New Delhi were paired up with partners from Berlin to collaborate with in order to push community initiatives forward. We invited Edwin Heathcote, architecture and design critic of the Financial Times, to write about the project. UrbanXchanger is now launched online as a web platform were you can download single documents of interest or a complete publication. The book has been edited by the project’s initiator Ute E. Weiland and curator Marcos L. Rosa.
