For a City That Is Desirable Once Again Cities are our future: what can be done so they will ultimately be desirable again?
Should we leave cities? The subject is very timely, and this book, which argues that we shouldn’t, deals with it intelligently, and without being overly-technical, which is rather rare in the realm of urbanism.
A stimulating text, powerful ideas, a limited number of figures, diagrams reserved for more technical elements: here one finds all the ingredients for a formula that has already marked the success of the Artus-Virard duo!
As victims of the pleasure principle and of immediate gratification, how can we overcome our reptilian brain? By relearning how to wait and to think.
The tale of the great advances of the last half-century up to the discovery of extrasolar planets.
