An authoritative - and fascinating - investigation into the spatial and social dynamics of cities at a global scale
Shaping Cities in an Urban Age is the third and final addition to Phaidon's hugely successful Urban Age series, published in collaboration with the London School of Economics (LSE).
Generously illustrated with photographs, visual data, and statistics, and featuring a series of essays written by leading people in their fields, Shaping Cities in an Urban Age addresses our most urgent contemporary and future urban issues by examining a set of key forces that have combined to create the city as we know it today.
